Grammar Police

tags: wtf?


Allie Brosh created the The Alot as a way to "deal with my compulsive need to correct other people's grammar." Since then, it's taken on a life of it's own.

My pet peeve? Rediculous. I don't know why, but it drives me bonkers.

Hyperbole And A Half is fantastic. I still giggle every time I think about her boy burning the oatmeal, so he instead had a tortilla for lunch. "Yay tortillas!"

I've learned to just let bad internet spelling slide. Hell, alot of us even use fake spelling such as "interwebs" in that tongue-in-cheek fashion. What gets me though is when people type out phrases that they have heard for years, but when it comes out as text it is obvious that they don't know what the actual phrase is. As example, "all intensive purposes" in place of "all intents and purposes".
