That film clip's nearly a year old, and the only reference on their website is from about the same date with the legend "watch this space" - so I wonder if that has actually foundered after all?

"Foundered" is a horseman's phrase for going lame, going down.

Also a nautical verb, a ship which has foundered is one which has sunk.

Chambers dictionary advises it derives from the French verb fondrer; to plunge to the bottom.

I know nothing relevant to Surreysinger's query.

Often you see foundered incorrectly spelled and pronounced floundered. The misuse is so common that it is replacing the proper word. So it goes with the Kings English, another term often incorrectly called the Queen's English. ;)

Floundered??? That's a word with a completely different meaning!!

I quote the first dictionary on-line which came to hand (Websters)

    *1 (of a ship) Fill with water and sink
       o six drowned when the yacht foundered off the Florida coast
    *2 (of a plan or undertaking) Fail or break down, typically as a result of a particular problem or setback
          o
            the talks foundered on the issue of reform
    *
      (of a hoofed animal, esp. a horse or pony) Succumb to laminitis


So yes, "foundered"

Floundered on the other hand (from the same source)

    *
      Struggle or stagger helplessly or clumsily in water or mud
          o
            he was floundering about in the shallow offshore waters
    *
      Struggle mentally; show or feel great confusion
          o
            she floundered, not knowing quite what to say
    *
      Be in serious difficulty
          o
            many firms are floundering

I love to go a-floundering,
Along the tide pool track,
And as I go, I love to sing,
My creel upon my back.

Chorus:
Val-deri,Val-dera,
Val-deri,
Val-dera-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha
Val-deri,Val-dera.
My creel upon my back!

Cheerily,
Charley Ignoble
