It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year Again …

4 Mar

It’s March 4, and you know what that means …

That’s right, smarty pants: IT’S NATIONAL GRAMMAR DAY!

Wooohooo! Par-TAY! Happy Grammar Day, mofos. March forth on March fourth to celebrate the splendor of speaking and writing well.

Grab a red pen and hunt for errors. Read a grammar haiku. Revisit Strunk & White’s “Elements of Style.” Hug an editor. Take an online grammar quiz.

Just go totally nuts today, OK?

Behold: the Dublin, Ireland “Anti Dog Fouling” campaign. The signs were placed outside schools, and in a number of spots in the city. Now, the Dublin City Council will take them down and begin again.  

Just another reminder to control your apostrophes, my friends.

And just like that, the holidays are upon us. This is what happens when I get a moment to breathe: a cornucopia of fails just for you. I’m thankful for your readership. Enjoy your turkey, turkeys.

Wasn’t it National Grammar Day just a few weeks ago? 

Hope you enjoyed a lovely spring and summer. Clearly, ours flew by. 

Now, it’s back-to-school time, and you know what that means: spelling and grammar gaffes galore. Let’s dive right in.

It’s that time again: National Grammar Day!

Watch those apostrophes. Murder emphasis quotes and passive voice with sheer abandon. Sip a grammartini. Hug an editor. Rescue dangling modifiers. JUST GO CRAZY.
