Wow, I'm a complete idiot. Good to know.
"complane" on square 2 :)
grammar nazi seethes with righteous fury...
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.
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!
I want to point them all out but that would be falling into his trap!
THE TERRIBLE TRAP.
I see what you did there...
After "complane", I figured it had to be intentionally. *eyes narrow* Well played, Meyer.
Irritating. Complain. Their. Pens. To. Seem. Grammar. Errors. Antagonising (AU spelling, I'll accept antagonizing). Your. Readers. Might. Better. Bastard.
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.
"Give in to THEIR wishes". Pet peeve of mine.
And also, an apostrophe DOES NOT MEAN "here comes an S!"
Okay, I really need to read the whole damned thing before commenting. Nice job, Scot.
Unnecessary apostrophe in the third panel. "Pens" is not possessive.
Darn it, should have read the whole thing first.
I can has Basik Istrucitons?
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!
SUFFER, GRAMMAR NAZIS, SUFFERRRR
(Well played, Scott.)
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|
yeah what is the deal with your grammar and spelling freaks? Why all the Scott-hate?
I realized this was deliberate when he properly spelled "irritating" on the third panel. After all, the comic's about bothering people.
Next comic, use proper spelling and grammar.
...I'll be back in five.
You Sir, are a king among men.
Brilliant! Now we'll never know if your spelling and grammar mistakes are truly mistakes, or just intended to irritate the spelling nazis.
I didn't notice any grammatical errors. Where at are they at?
I... you... it... brilliant.
Oh my god, I can't believe so many people pull out the red ink pen before even reading to the end!
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.
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.
Genius. Pure, unadulterated genius.
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.
