I am troubled by this headline, but I can’t clearly express what I would rather have it say. Peeps?

Actually, I just love that spellcheck didn’t catch this one. Nice job, WaPo.


Keep dreaming.

Some of you guys, I just want to pat you on your heads or give you hugs, you know?

Poor Reporter #1 has been sending me lonely photos of comma splices for the last year. I hate a comma splice as much as the next person, but… we have to be realistic here, kids.

So Laura, I don’t know what to tell you about this one.



You’re right, of course: one cannot be both 12 and under at the same time. But do you honestly want to take that up with the federal government? The same agency that’s insisting that my chapstick is a threat to flight security?

If you do, I’ll give you a nice hug first.

Well, that decision was easy!

I mean, people abuse quotations all over the place. We know this. But if there’s a place you want to not do that, it’s in reference to a specific service at a specific price. Just don’t.


Thanks, GrammarTroika Sister #1!

Trigger warnings. All of them.

…because this is gonna give y’all hives.


I guess we could all imagine that this was designed by a very sarcastic employee who was taking dictation from her boss at the time. Right?

Thanks, GrammarTroika Sister #2!

I don’t even know what this one is. I mean, it’s obviously a punctuation error, but this isn’t even a place I’d normally use punctuation, so.

Mmm ice cream.


Thanks, GrammarTroika Sister #2!

An interesting assessment of value

My friend Casey’s mom found this at a flea market!

Oregon for sale

I will admit that I sat here for a second trying to figure out what in the picture was from or related to Oregon. Then I had a *facepalm* moment.

Reporter #1 finds the most interesting… can we even call them errors? Maybe? I mean, this seems likely to be incorrect, no matter how you spin it. But I suppose there is an explanation out there in the world that would make it acceptable. I’d just like to know the story!

Not delicious

This… doesn’t look tasty.


In answer to your question, Grammar Troika Sister #1, however, I do have to point out that you probably can eat this device, if you break it up and don’t try to chew much. I’m not sure it would be advisable to do so, however!
