Ah, and therein lies the problem with being a grammar nazi, Peter. While, initially, it may seem like fun and makes you feel good about yourself, what it really does it paint a big red target on your back. (Speaking from experience, of course.) hoist verb [ with obj. ] raise (something) by means of ropes and pulleys: high overhead great cranes hoisted girders. • raise or haul up: she hoisted her backpack onto her shoulder. Perhaps you were thinking of “foist?” foist verb [ with obj. ] (foist someone/something on) impose an unwelcome or unnecessary person or thing on: don't let anyone foist inferior goods on you. • (foist someone/something into) introduce someone or something surreptitiously or unwarrantably into: he attempted to foist a new delegate into the conference.
