A quick mini review today. I am in love with theOatmeal.com and the snarky little illustrations about using semicolons, misspelled words, and using apostrophes. The author/illustrator draws up how-to comics of common mechanical problems and other enlightening topics (e.g. How to Tell if Your Cat is Plotting to Kill You) (And yes, my cats are plotting to kill me). His graphics are protected from copying, so I won’t post them here, but I strongly encourage you to check out his material. Just don’t drink milk while you read, as it might come spraying out your nose.
P.S. If you’re looking for a Christmas present for your favorite English teacher, you can buy posters of these illustrations. Personally, I’d like semicolons, misspelled words, and apostrophes hanging on my wall just for funsies!
P.S. 2. Matthew Inman, if you read this post, may I request a poster about how to use the word everyday vs every day?
Time to votey voterson. Brilliantly creative or gigantic idiot?
