@burgers: Are you serious? Jorge is a name. Normally, used by spanish speakers. Which makes the whole deal even sadder than before. Someone, who probably does not use English as his mother language, is giving a class to someone who probably does.
Oh they’re all golden. The funniest one for me was Jorge’s corrections, but of course as pointed out, it was snapped immediately. People, if you are going to submit your own, PLEASE don’t just delete the delete function from the image. Malarkey, funny name, is it coincidence that it also can be used in the sense of “load of malarkey”?
Kandace’s post wouldn’t make sense even if ‘through’ was spelt as ‘threw’.
I like how PFKATristain, in his first post, flatly states ‘end of story’ and then feels the need to rush in again to continue the story. Where I come from, if a kelpie pup behaves like that, we put it down and save us all a lot of bother later.
You know what i find more annoying than people spelling words wrong? people correcting spelling mistakes, with an asterisk. what sad fucker needs to constantly correct others people’s spelling, it makes them look like pretensious little cunts, “ooh look at me I can spell properly, and you can’t, therefore i’m better than you”. it’s goddam facebook not a fucking english essay. granted, there are places where good spelling and grammar are absolutely necessary, but facebook aint one of em. it’s the frickin internet, it’s supposed to be forward thinking and fluid, and changing the english language is enevitable, as well as a good thing. Jorge* needs a big slap from a big handed bastard.
I don’t have FB friends that correct my typos or my spelling. “Lame friends” is more like it. Of course, I am saying this on Lamebook and a friend who would post something here from a “friend” wouln’t be much of a friend anyway.
@Svetlana: Way to go Svetlana, nail ‘em and they still love you. That’s funny.
Crystal may have a stupid name, and she may spell ‘you’re’ as ‘ur’, but for spelling ‘protractor’ correctly, I believe she deserves respect from all of us here. Or am I just saying that because she appears intelligent next to the rest of these poor excuses for human beings?
topcatistop…………….i want to have your babies! i do, i want babies with you! I say the same thing all the time but it seems we are some of the very few who don’t care how people spell on the internet on a social forum to be read by so called friends!
Ignoramuses is the plural. It should be ignorami.
Just like the plural of mouse, should be meece!
My mummy and I used to come up with other names for the plural of allot of animals,
Sheep = sheepies.
Mouse = meece
Moose = moosi
It was entertaining until I turned 5.
And for all the ‘haters’ out there that get all pissed of at people like myself and Svetlana, Insane and the others (you know who you are) we feel it is our duty to help you seem a little less stupid with every correction. Don’t take it personally, unless you actually are stupid and if that’s the case you should stop whining, you might actually learn how to spell.
P.s, Missed you Svetlana, and welcome back Mecure, hope you had a safe flight
Kaoss i used to like your interventions but claiming that it is your duty to help people seem a little less stupid …
Well that’s just crossing the imaginary superiority line
I do hate grammar nazis who destroy the essence of communication … being the message and not the form.
Most people are stupid ,i agree but feeling superior to other beings does not elevate you… Better schooling does not make you a better person. You know what happens what people who think alike get a small form op power and gather weaker,scared individuals around them … i ll let you fill in the dots.
And i am sorry for using the third person here cause this is not only for you …
But i really hate the fact that a very funny, witty and freespirited site is quickly turning in to a terror dome of superiority
People , we have found someone that does not spell every single word he types on a social community site correctly … so let’s all take a cheap shot at the poor sod. And in come the weaker ones following their great leaders throwing stones at the victim of the day.
Yay, me haz a pool! I is no Frodo, Frodo is a retart.
On another note
I appreciate where you are coming from though, Father Sha, but by all means I do not actually think I am better than anyone, or more intelligent just because I can spell, or use spell check. It just makes me a better speller. I’m not actually that conceited. But I am really awesome.
2 seconds seems to be the time it takes between someone hitting the comment button and the FB live feed refreshing it back to them. Every time I comment on someone else’s status, or post my own status update, it always says “2 seconds ago”. I’ve never seen “2 seconds ago” appear for someone else’s comment or update. So, it’s almost certain Jorge submitted this himself, and most likely knew he was going to submit it before he even finished writing it.
Humans must learn all the time, but not forcefully. Yes, you can ease yourself and have fun occasionally, but why not try having intellectual values out of everything? When you eat, figure how much you can take in per minute. When you walk around the park, see what kind of flowers grow where. When you copulate, find out where the sweet spot for both you and your partner(s). These ARE parts of education, or at least they are so in my opinion.
Misspellings like “tierd” and “there” to mean “tired” and “they’re” might seem trivial that corrections are not necessary, but who knows if Malarky was just being fast (and lazy) in typing or just spell based on how it usually sounds like? A LOT of people are like that. Even if you would go that way, there’s no excuse to typing (I hope this is grammatically correct) “tierd” (5 letters) instead of “tired” (also 5 letters) and also “there” instead of “they’re” (there is another word. Alternatives : “theyre”, “theyr”, “thyr”. Yeah well I know it’s understood easily if you’re experienced enough in life). “Dont” and “kno” is permissible for usage, as they sounds completely or almost the same to their origins. Jorge (whore-gay? Not trolling or anything. Just wanting to know how it’s pronounced) possibly corrected all the errors his buddy made out of pure generosity, or out of (pure) addiction, or out of (pure) humour. I don’t feel like elaborating anymore, so I hope someone understands. I admit I am far from grammatically perfect, and that I cannot find the best word to replace “far” even though “far” sounds too “near”. I therefore welcome any corrections to this tl;dr of a post. Please don’t flame me too much (yes you can) if I forgot to make my points as I am as forgetful as a goldfish.
… just saying.
Postscript : Alyssa forgot a space in “parking lot”. Also, I don’t have a pool, but (and?) I kick ass.
Jorge was posting the comment to be funny. I correct certain things in people’s spelling, rarely “dont,” but things like kno and improper use of words like there/their/they’re etc I will correct.
Also Jorge is pronounced either “George” if they want to Americanize it, or “Hor-Hay” in their language. I know a few that go by both. They usually only go by George because most Americans do not know how to pronounce it properly and get tired of correcting, since the name has the same roots.
I am curious what Kandace was responding to when she typed that. It seems awkward. Who uses the term “drop knowledge”?
Tanner gets douchey points for the cheese factor.
As for Malarkey – someone who speaks/types that way usually has never heard the term Malarkey, let alone used it properly.
MALARKEY: n. Slang
Exaggerated or foolish talk, usually intended to deceive: “snookered by a lot of malarkey” (New Republic).
Methinks his typos and use of eubonics was purposeful thus making his moniker true. I sense snookery afoot.
Alyssa must be psychic to know those folks were having an affair because to my knowledge people don’t put a sign on their windshield that reads “cheaters” when engaged in unauthorized macking in parking lots.
And kirsten? It’s okay hun, don’t strain yourself.
I’m confused as to how people are arguing about this, saying it’s not right or people are elitists because they correct someone’s spelling.
Father Sha’s comment made me laugh, that we shouldn’t take ‘cheap shots’ at people. Last I checked, this was lamebook.com not everyoneonfacebookistotallyawesome.com, and this WHOLE ENTIRE WEBSITE IS ABOUT TAKING CHEAP SHOTS AND LAUGHING AT PEOPLE.
But it’s only okay if you’re not correcting their spelling while you do it, cause that means you have a superiority complex and you’ll gather many weaker minded minions and take over the world.
I hate the “TypOHs!” sections of lamebook. Most of them are not funny, and they get annoying. Mainly because there is enough spelling corrections on here daily. Although, I will give kudos to the fact that you guys fight with intellect instead of throwing a bunch of curse words into a sentence for attacks.
Jorge- Congratulations on knowing how to spell, but you’re still a douche for 2 reasons..
1. Your picture seems to be of a pokemon.
2. Not only did you enter this in yourself and think everyone would have a good laugh at your spelling corrections, but then you edited the delete button out so people wouldn’t make comments like the one I am posting. That also makes you a pussy.
You are spot on chiiro, i was just being a prick about it. Cheap shots are fine and the purpose of this website but i like the creative shot. I can come up with calling people pussies on my own while being a grammar nazi. But some of the comments here (and also from kaoss and co) are very funny because they offer something extra. The kind of jokes/comments that make you lol at work … Cheap and easy shots get boring after a while.
That and me just working out a bad temper on the other one, so the stick i am getting is well deserved.
Okay – ask SeeBea – he’s seen me – he knows I’m a girl… a bit of a chunky one, but a girl, none the less – and as I always say – Fat girls try harder. By the way – why would I want to post crappy comments like that? You know I’ve got a whole lot more upstairs than THAT excuse of a post. Besides, if it doesn’t include the words “Merry Christmas” “Douche” “Sack of Shit” then I can guarantee you it’s definetly not me…
I am shocked. Shocked and HURT that you think that little of me. *Going to corner to sulk*
Svetlana is indeed a girl a beautiful lucious grade A example of South Afrikan womanhood.
That said, I agree with you. I don’t know if it is as great a number as you put out there but absolutely a high number are men.
And you may try to be mean but you clearly do not have it in you. What with efending the underdog and all that.
I miss my angle too! It was acute and a’funny and… *sniff*. I can’t believe how obtuse I was for leaving her (him?)… But that day i-so-celes with my angle… couldn’t keep myself from trying to make things right.
If only things were… normal again.
Oh ye gods. I’m sorry folks. That must have hurt. But it was worth it.
