I’ve informed people of this before, but Muphry’s law states that whenever you pick on someone for their grammar/spelling, you WILL have a mistake in your own. It never ceases to amaze me how true that law is.
I’m pretty sure the typo’s are due to the fact that she updated her status VIA facebook mobile. No one is stupid enough to not know how to spell brains. Pretty ironic he’s called her out when he doesn’t even know the difference between ‘your’ and ‘you’re’
god and i have an affair actually. we go out to aruba every year for 18 days.(it takes 1 day from aruba up to sky on both ways) travel planning takes too much time, so no caring for ones like TJ on those days…sorry tj, i need him only for me on the holiday season.
You don’t need to comb the internet. You kind of just put two and two together. You know, Murphy’s Law is about things going wrong, Muphry’s law is misspelled and dealing with proofreading mistakes, it’s not that hard to figure it out.
Perhaps in the time you aren’t combing the internet for obscure references, you could try dislodging the permanent wedgie that seems to be making you so bitter and unpleasant.
Ahhh, yes – 11 (or 10 days on a leap year) of pure divine bliss where God plays His hardcore ‘pretty much reality’ game, SMITE ATTACK, on His widescreen globe with the brand new Lightning Rod controller. “I SMITE YOU, FTW!” BOOM. Smitely smoted.
Even if I didn’t completely understand the Muphry’s Law thing, immediately saying it was “karma” that she misspelled it was just stupid. It was either on purpose, or, she had just admitted to spelling mistakes upon correcting others. So even if it wasn’t on purpose, “karma” had no place because she wasn’t picking on anyone. But we clearly now see it was.
The people that started insulting her after just felt stupid. It’s not really all that better to know how to spell than to feel threatened by someone else leaving a comment (thus admitting you don’t know everything) and lash out.
I started a collage at the beginning of the year. It’s of god throwing hard times and easy times at hipsters. I add to it each day, so far 783 days, and I plan on finishing at the end of the year so only another 3872 days to go. Yippee.
@Two Tone Sammy
Is this the meatyphore you meaned?
I dreamed that I was walking down the beach with the Goddess Eris. And I looked back and saw footprints in the sand. But sometimes there were two pairs of footprints and sometimes there was only one. And the times there was only one set of footprints, those were my times of greatest trouble. So I asked Eris,
“Why in my greatest need did you abandon me?”
She replied, “I never left you. Those were the times we both hopped on one foot.”
And I was really embarrassed for bothering Her with such a stupid question.
Damon is wrong about an “s” needing to be after “TA”, because Sarah is clearly only talking about one TA, not more than one (“god dambed hipster” not “hipsters”).
And even if she WAS talking about more than one TA, the correct grammar is not “TA’s” but “TAs”. There is no apostrophe because the “TA” is not in possession of anything. It’s like when you see signs that say “Thousands of CD’s and DVD’s on sale!”. That’s the same as saying “Cat’s and dog’s”, but people think the first example is correct and the second is incorrect, when in fact they’re both wrong cause none of the things mentioned are in possesion of anything. People just think things like CDs and TAs need an apostrophe before the “s” because they’re acronyms.
Damon, first of all, if you’re going to be a Grammar Nazi, PLEASE check EVERYTHING you type after you’ve typed it. It seems as if you are contradicting what you say. I absolutely HATE when people mix up “you’re” and “your”. It’s so easy. If “your” is supposed to be in the sentence, obviously “you are” isn’t supposed to be.
Actually if an acronym or an abbreviation contains internal punctuation, the use of the “‘s” in forming the plural is considered by many linguists to be correct. In such cases the “‘s” does not mark the genitive (possessive) case. Example: Ph.D.’s
Ok. yes, I spell like a drunk monkey. I know this. But I also have a 3.5 (w/o cheating) at a big ten university. And, even though it was after class, my TA was glaring at me when I wrote this. So I take the fail. I would like to thank the academy!
Hey Julie…I’m a Murphy, and seriously, I got your joke and actually lolled. Snarky comments are fun. I’ll have to find a thread not to jack and comment on the morons too. Poor college girls that were former Homecoming Queens, having to share breathing space with Hipsters. Actually, they rather deserve one another.
Damon, she also misspelled “I’m”, “I’ve” and “doesn’t”; forgot to capitalise the first word of the sentence; didn’t hyphenate “self-righteous” or “god-damned”; and over-used exclamation marks. You, meanwhile, misspelled “you’re” and forgot to end a sentence with a full stop.
Now… what did I do wrong? :p Is it “misspelled” or “misspelt”? Should I have used semi-colons or just commas? Should I have used the word “and” after a semi-colon? Should I have said “period” instead of “full stop”? Should “full stop” be one word?
Absolute 100% effort. In fact, it is so good it might upset the spelling-&-gramophone nazi’s here as they won’t be able to spot a mistake anywhere in your post. Or should that be, nazis?
The post by One Stone Whammy (#74) is by far the funniest, cleverest and winning-est post of all time, like, for 345 days a year. Just had to mention his post after all this time because no one else did. You deserved better, One Stone.
And isn’t it so delightful how some persons arrive here late – not bothering to read any of the already posted comments – then entertain us by posting something that has already been repeated ad infinitum and ad nauseum. I am in fact pretty sure that the very next post is going to mock T.j. for following the 345-day calendar, because no one else has noticed it yet.
@ Jaco: neither. “Nazi” get a capital because it’s a proper noun. Let’s go through all the errors in the first example, because Jill Smartass gave up caring before pointing out all of them. “Self-righteous” should have a hyphen and “righteous” is misspelt. The next sentence doesn’t begin with a capital, “Im” is missing an apostrophe, “dosnt” is like a cat walked on the keyboard, “ive” misses a capital and an apostrophe, “brai” tells its own story, “god dambed” should be one word if it were spelt correctly, “God” gets a capital because he rocks one fuck of a beard, and “dambed” is obviously a throwback from RE class and “lamb”. God works in all sorts of fucked-up ways.
Oh, and Damon should get over the fact she missed the “‘s”. He missed the 49th day of fetal neural development.
Jill Smartass above covered pretty much everything else (but should it be “arse”?), although my penchant for double-quotes will get some people worked up, fo sheezy.
And let’s chalk up a big, juicy FAIL to everyone above sounding off about possessive apostrophe usage and bleating about poor spelling when their own reads like they’re missing a chromosome. Thesaurapist13′s effort – “None of us is will ever be quite as god at spelling or grammar again” – is all we need to see. Finally, fuck you William F Buckley for assuming everyone under 30 is a moron. I’m 28 and arrogant middle-aged men are only good for having desperate wives who’ll do anything I tell them to.
Damon, if you’re going to be a grammar policeman then get it right:
Sarah misspelt (or misspelled for our American friends) ‘righteous’, ‘I’m', ‘doesn’t', ‘I’ve’, ‘brains’ and ‘damned’. She also didn’t give God a capital letter. However, I don’t think that TA needed an ‘s’ on the end because she was talking about a singular; she later says ‘hipster!’
Damon, you lame boy, you misspelt ‘you’re’ whilst picking fault with someone else’s spellings, and only corrected a few of Sarah’s mistakes which suggests to me that you didn’t realise the rest were wrong.
I understand Damon correcting Sarah and i respect him but he misspelled “You’re” which kinda ruins the whole you’re a retard and i know spelling so I’m gonna correct you thing…
+ T.J should probably repeat 1st grade or make that kindergarten…idiot.
