Do You Know Your Sh*t?

I've been gathering pictures and memes about grammar, and I thought I'd share some of them with you today. See, poor grammar, improper punctuation, inaccurately auto-corrected texts are a bane on a reader's life... on the life of anyone on the receiving end of written communication.

But today, I'd like to start with punctuation. Improper punctuation is almost to epidemic proportions. The things proper/improper punctuation can do!

Change the entire meaning of a sentence.

Save a life with proper punctuation!

Accuse the innocent with creative punctuation.
Clarification is everything!
Have a rocking good time with proper punctuation.. and better company.
While texting has its own rules, at least be clear.
On a professionally custom-painted pickup.... and they call themselves "professionals"... ?

See, proper punctuation can define, save a life, exonerate the innocent, clarify, and even improve a party. On the other hand, improper punctuation can do the exact opposite.. in addition to making you look like a full-on doofus.
So which are you?
So, in conclusion, a note from Grammar herself:

This public service announcement has been brought to you by:

Over There in Their Yard.. about to Pare a Pair of Pears.

Thank you for you're time ;)

  1. Love this. I used to substitute at the grade school down the street. I'd go into a 2nd grade class and read the instructions for the day.
    "Have the students put they're backpacks in there cubbies. Your welcome to put your things in the desk " etc etc. It took everything in my power not to take a red pencil to the paper and make corrections and leave it for them the next day.
