"complane" on square 2 :)

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterShade

'complane'?

grammar nazi seethes with righteous fury...

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterzod

Oh man, you trolled me hard. Well played.

That'll teach me not to read to the end.

I love BI and it is one of my home tabs. I started too correct the typoz and then I realized that was part of the joak. Thankz for entertaneing me.

Despite knowing that you put those spelling mistakes in there on purpose, I still found it really annoying. Well done. Nicely played.

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

Nice "mistakes", readable but HURTING MY BRAIN SCOTT! =(

irritating, not "irritateing"
Complain, not "Complane"
pens, not "pen's"
their, not there
?, not .
your not "you're"
readers not "readerz"
might not "mite"

0000000000000! is someone being a little pissy? Love it! Love It! Love It!

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBudMan

I... I...

I want to point them all out but that would be falling into his trap!

THE TERRIBLE TRAP.

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered Commentersleepygamer

I see what you did there...

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJill

After "complane", I figured it had to be intentionally. *eyes narrow* Well played, Meyer.

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAdam S.

Irritating. Complain. Their. Pens. To. Seem. Grammar. Errors. Antagonising (AU spelling, I'll accept antagonizing). Your. Readers. Might. Better. Bastard.

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAlister

Aaaaarggh! The mistakes! It's like an itch I can't get to!
Now I know how my (borderline) OCD girlfriend feels when I deliberately turn the magazines on the table so that the edges no longer line up to the edge of the table.
:)
Nice work, very funny. But I hate you now. ;)

frame 2, "complane".

I was gonna say! I was a bit surprised when I saw "there." But I think you may have gone overboard with the number of mistakes on the last panel. Sorta killed the subtle brilliance.

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered Commentercfactor

"Give in to THEIR wishes". Pet peeve of mine.

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterArtie

And also, an apostrophe DOES NOT MEAN "here comes an S!"

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterArtie

Okay, I really need to read the whole damned thing before commenting. Nice job, Scot.

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterArtie

Unnecessary apostrophe in the third panel. "Pens" is not possessive.

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterNate

Complain.

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMikey

Darn it, should have read the whole thing first.

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterNate

tou-friggin-che!

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterYes, I am Tubby

Verie suttle.

I can has Basik Istrucitons?

(I win!)

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterWisteriam

This probably would have been funnier if he didn't explain that he was antagonizing us. Quick, everyone bug him to not explain the joke!

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterG

BWAHAHAHA!

SUFFER, GRAMMAR NAZIS, SUFFERRRR

(Well played, Scott.)

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCookie

The part that really bugged me was I kept parsing the mistake in the third panel as "three wishes", and I kept looking for the genie. 8|

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterYakko Warner

yeah what is the deal with your grammar and spelling freaks? Why all the Scott-hate?

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterisiah

I realized this was deliberate when he properly spelled "irritating" on the third panel. After all, the comic's about bothering people.

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterguissmo

Next comic, use proper spelling and grammar.

...I'll be back in five.

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle

You Sir, are a king among men.

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterYA

Brilliant! Now we'll never know if your spelling and grammar mistakes are truly mistakes, or just intended to irritate the spelling nazis.

Check.

I didn't notice any grammatical errors. Where at are they at?

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered Commenteroldestgenxer

Masterful.

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChaon

I... you... it... brilliant.

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBen

Oh my god, I can't believe so many people pull out the red ink pen before even reading to the end!

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJesper

I think the thing that people are overlooking is that there's an infinite regress in panel four.

He's showing a comic that has a panel showing his comic, that has a panel showing his comic, etc.

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterEric

Missed opportunity: "If making my boss happy is losing" could have been "If making my boss happy is loosing"
That one REALLY riles people up.

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSome Young Guy

Genius. Pure, unadulterated genius.

May 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAngie

I love how some commenters miss the fact that the errors are intentional, then comment on one of them and miss all the other ones.
