Hello, my dear grammar enthusiasts. I took last Friday off for the Thanksgiving holiday – I hope you did, too! However, I am back with a meme which I hope you find as funny as I did – mostly because of the irony of the error that could have been avoided if they had actually used their beloved spell check. Happy Friday! 🙂
My favorite book I had to read as an assignment in high school was To Kill a Mockingbird. I loved Atticus and wanted him to be my father. So, without further ado, here is today’s English Friday meme, courtesy of Grammarly.com.
You guys. You’re in for a real treat today. This is pretty much my favorite pun of all time. It’s so stinkin’ funny!
I am a firm believer that puns like this make the world a better place because LAUGHTER.
I would have definitely voted for her!
Anyone else? Bueller? Bueller?
Wouldn’t the English language be so much more interesting if there were accents?
I feel this way about Señor when he starts to get really passionate about something – his accent comes out with his English.
If only he had that sweet ‘stache, too 😉
BONUS: If you visit Dana’s website, you can find the tutorial of how to make this sweet blanket!
(No, I do not know Dana. I merely found her via my Google search consisting of “cute blanket” when trying to find an image to make this graphic.)
I’m truly an English nerd – I love a good pun and I have strong feelings about the Oxford comma. I also proofread EVERYTHING. The menu at the restaurant, signs outside of business establishments, and power point presentations at a large company Town Hall meeting (Yesterday we celebrated Service Anniversary’s. Shudder.) This list could keep going but I’ll stop there. You get the point.
So today, I introduce English Friday, in which I will most likely share a good pun most Fridays, but today I have a real treat for you. It’s my favorite example of why the Oxford comma should not be a choice, but rather a rule.
I seriously laughed SO.HARD. the first time I saw this. Tears were streaming from laughter. It was a good day.
