Comments: Get your music sting cued up

Interesting . . . if they think that the item within a vending machine does the vending, what do they think the machine does? Granted, the rowing machine doesn't do the rowing. (But the sewing machine *does* do the sewing. Hey, sounds like lost lyrics from a Paul McCartney and Wings album.) Or maybe "vending" is a word like the transitive form of "kissing", which can apply reciprocally to both parties at once: "The shiny new machine was happily vending bottles of Poland Springs water. 'It feels so good to vend you like this,' said one of the bottles to the machine." [from Best Inanimate Erotica 2004].

Yeah, it's a weird verb usage, all right. Maybe they thought "It is vended" sounded too Biblical.
