  2. I weep for the future.

  3. bad spelling really isn’t THAT lame. you’re letting the side down lamebook.

  4. the about section

    Lamebook is for fun and the name says it all: We post lame and funny pictures, status updates, and other gems found on your favorite social networking site.

  5. I luv it. The wave of the future is chooze-your-own-spelling. Weave individualized everything from mouse pads to dentistry, why shud words be any diffrant! That’s Killin It.

  6. @ Paul Crik

    Agreed.

  7. @ Johan

    Please read the about section and quit littering the comments board with your uninformed opinions. This was funny as shit.

  8. She beet it though, so…

  9. Greg’s words were perfect. Nothing else was needed after that.

  10. I walked passed a beet-down yesterday but didn’t do anything to stoop-it.

  11. @Paul Crik

    Just clicked your link. You really need to get over yourself.

  12. “Killin’ It With Paul Crik” may be the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen. It’s your fault Hurting for me clicking his link! haha.

  13. Bad spelling might not be lame. But spelling badly, being pointed at your mistake, and still not getting it… Yes, that’s definitely lame.

  14. Their funny.

  15. I beet shes a god leid thought

  16. Greg’s comment doesn’t work at all, hahaha.

  17. HA, what a tard!

  18. I know a beet farmer, but I don’t know any beet poets.

  19. @16. How does Greg’s comment not work? It’s grammatically correct, as well as the correct spelling. “Past” in his sentence is functioning as an adverb, modifying “walk”, whereas Natalie’s sentence attempts to make it function as a past-tense verb, which fails. The past tense (haha ‘past’ as an adjective!)of pass is “passed”.

  20. If Natalie were saying that she walked by her test, she still would have had to say, “I passed my test,” and not, “I past my test.”

  21. @mary
    @Mel

    Greg is making fun of the fact that Natalie can’t tell the difference between an adverb and the past tense.

    Now, for tomorrow I want you to all to look into the correct usage of LIE and LAY.

  22. Beets and crap..it’s what’s for dinner tonight.

  23. I clicked Paul Crik’s link and it was stupid.

    So over all these misspelt lame’s. Jesse WIN.

  24. I think all the people who say spelling corrections aren’t lame or funny, have probably been called out on it themselves.

    I love seeing this! Spelling is such a basic thing. I don’t understand why so many people just can’t get it right. It makes me sad.

  25. @ boz, oh goody, this is my favourite one – ‘lie’ is an intransitive verb, which means it doesn’t take an object, just a subject. e.g. ‘Where shall I lie?’. ‘Lay’ is a transitive verb that needs an object, e.g., ‘Lay down your guns and don’t shoot me for being a grammar nerd’.

    …sorry everyone, it’s 4.44 a.m, I’m a bit delirious.

    p.s. I don’t want to be spoder anymore, I want to be foolishwolf. I love that name. (*gazes up, wistfully*)

  26. Greg’s comment is crap. He could have put something funnier. Like Jesse.

  27. i heart jesse

  28. i hate people who don’t know the difference between then and than.

  29. If she had failed, how would she have spelled that? “Felled”? “Falled”?

  30. Nine months from now, having both taken advantage of her drunken condition while celebrating her success, Greg and Jesse will be waiting to find out which has past a paternity test.

    Lets hope the father of the little accident is the one least likely to beet the crap out of her on a regular basis.

  31. @Mary

    Yeah, Greg’s comment is wrong.

  32. wahahha! JESSE FTW!

  33. I’m expecting you all to read JITTERBUG PERFUME by Tom Robbins by morning.

    And the beet goes on.

  34. That book is awful. Though I do think of it anytime beets are mentioned.

  35. PAST
    adverb 13. so as to pass by or beyond; by: The troops marched past.

    PASSED
    adjective 2. having received a passing grade on an examination or test or successfully completed a school course, year, or program of study.

    Mel, you fail.

  36. No, ‘Passed’, as in ‘to have passed’ something, would be correct. ‘I past my test’ doesn’t make sense whichever way you look at it. That’s karma reinforced.

  37. @John

    “Natalie passed the test” would be correct in two ways: 1.) If she got a passing grade, or 2.) is she had passed by it while walking.

    “Natalie past the test” is grammatically incorrect. It would be “Natalie walked past the test,” or, in first person: “I walked past the test.”

    You are mostly correct. You could have understood what I was trying to say…although I should have clarified my original post a little bit more. Karma’s a bitch, isn’t it?? Haha..

  38. I agree with everything you’ve said (in this thread, not in life, I don’t know you). But Mel was right in that as soon as you take the “walked” out, “past” becomes “passed”. I’ve just realized how cool I am having this conversation :)

  39. Wow, that Natalie sounds like a umbass.

  40. Natalie is a dumPass…
