Valentine’s Day: Don’t F**k It Up

14 Feb

For more aggravation, check out Twitter’s ever-growing feed of folks tweeting their precious hearts out about “Valentime’s Day.” While some are intentional spelling gaffes, many others, sadly, are not. Enjoy, lovers! 


This Make’s Us Sad, Too…

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.

The Perils of Blinking

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.

A New Year’s Eve Request

31 Dec

NYE Party HatIf you catch anyone shouting “Happy New Years!” tonight, please thump them on the head. It might squash some party hats and/or provoke drunken anger, but go ahead and do it anyway. Let me know how that goes.

We’re only celebrating one new year, not several. While there will be more new years (don’t tell the Mayans), we’re only dealing with 2015 right now. Happy New Year.

For geeky kicks, click here for a growing-by-the-minute list of “Happy New Years” tweets. Ugh.
