Shlebs & Aido you’re both idiots. You’re clearly such big fans that you don’t know the lyric goes “You’re” / “You are” and not “your” how many more times can I say you’re in this box just to prove my point that the you’re they meant to write is “you’re” and not “your” I hope you’re getting my point. I doubt you are getting my point as you’re both idiots however, I will never thankfully know the extent of how idiotic you both are. hum de dum.
I always wonder: why is it that it is mostly native speakers who don’t know how to spell in English. I mean, come on, of course there are some tricky words but not to be able to know the difference(s) between “you’re” and “your”, “their”, “they’re” and “there”, “it’s” and “its” is kind of pathetic.
I can tell you exactly why: teachers. I didn’t have a single teacher explain grammar to me until I was in 9th grade. NINTH GRADE. A bit late, don’t you think? That was pretty much the last grammar lesson I had, too. My 10th grade English teacher didn’t think it was important.
P.S. I also thought the first one said “pour” instead of “your.”
Whoa… yimmie, chill. Wake up on the wrong side of the bed this morning? Aido pointed out that there was a grammar fail when he/she first posted. Had they not noticed that at all, your reaction would still be kinda bordering on looney.
And yes, “Love is not like anything” is one of the most moronic things I’ve heard in a long time.
the second tattoo, “Love is not like anything” is most likely from a song by The Used. There’s this part from the song “You’re a Fake” in the beginning that goes “Love is not like anything… especially a f*cking knife”. she probably didn’t want that part on there. lol
I was thinking it was from “I’m A Fake” too, but the lyrics really don’t make any sense unless you have the entire quote on there…why the hell get something tattooed on your body if you’re not going to have it make sense. Idiots.
I’m rather amused whenever I read:
“What a lame and moronic tattoo.”
“It’s not lame. It’s from a song.”
If you say something moronic, it isn’t made less moronic by the fact that someone else said it first. I believe the correct ending for the above discourse is:
“What a lame and moronic song lyric tattoo.”
@Poopface (#21) – “I didn’t have a single teacher explain grammar to me until I was in 9th grade. NINTH GRADE. A bit late, don’t you think?”
I’m really sorry to hear that. Unfortunately, your parents relied too heavily on the school system. They also must never have encouraged you to read books. You would know, otherwise.
I certainly don’t attribute my spelling, grammar or vocabulary to my school education.
“Hey idiots: “your” is possessive, and “you’re” is a contraction of “you are”. “Its” is also possessive, while “it’s” is a contraction of “it is” or “it has”. If you want to contract “we are”, you HAVE to put use an apostrophe, as in “we’re”. You should NEVER use an apostrophe when conjugating verbs. I really hope you will read this tattoo and keep all this in mind when getting your own tattoo. But, of course, I know you won’t. Asshole.”
The spelling and grammar errors are pathetic. A typo in an email or board post is no big deal compared to having that sh*t on your body forever as a declaration of your idiocy and laziness. Why laziness? Because it would take less than 5 minutes to look it up and fix it!!!
Okay, grammar rant over.
Personally, I think tattoos of lyrics are L A M E for a few reasons…
a) You obviously can’t think of anything original.
b) Text rarely makes for a good artistic arrangement. It can be done, but it usually isn’t.
c) You are cut-n-pasting somebody else’s words, which were probably lame in the first place!
Yes, a and c are the same. It deserves to be counted twice.
The 2nd one is lyrics. Which makes it seem stupider, when you realise the full quote is “My sad, sorry selfish cryout to the cutter: I’m cutting trying to picture your black, broken heart. Love is not like anything, especially a fucking knife!”
I have to admit that for me, “Make’s” is the astounding of the bunch. When is “make’s” ever grammatically correct? Is it never? I’m pretty sure it’s never. GUH. The others are terrible too, but “Make’s”? REALLY?!
This post be for the win. These too tattoos everyone who has posted to check, And double check They’re grammar and spelling. Its a little lame to mess up the grammar in your tattoo. It’s way lame to fix your grammar on the internet because of that tattoo.
This entire post is a let down. I could totally have read an interesting post in the time it took me to read this, but no I stuck it out relying on those of Lamebook to come up with a comment so fantastic that it made me forget about the previous bad comments and the horrible post.
Sadly, this comment never came. Shame on you. SHAME.
The only time “make’s” would be right would be if you were talking about the word itself i.e. “what is your favourite word? i think make’s a good word.” Very rare, you’re correct.
The fact you made a very slight but real error in your very well thought-out and hilarious post makes it clear why STUPID PEOPLE SHOULD NOT HAVE WORDS INKED ON THEIR BODIES. If it can happen to the intelligent……… Case closed.
and the sentence “love is not like anything’ is a COMPLETE grammar fail. for it to make sense, it would have to say, ‘love is not like anything ELSE.’ otherwise, you’d be saying that love is not like anything in the entire universe, including itself.
I suspect the tattoo artists are incapable of correcting the spelling and grammar, especially considering how poor the quality of work is. I mean look at your own signature; you have missed an apostrophe and have an unnecessary exclamation mark in the middle of the sentence.
