great post as usual!
...please... stop... it hurts x_x
you fail to annoy me. try harder next time.
Hopefully the grammer Nazi will start to realize that there not doing anything to help. There just having a knee jerk pedantic reaction to prove their better then everyone else.
You are helping no one and have a negative effect on the internet.
The exception being places where the point is to improve grammer. 5 mistake were intentional made during the writing of this post.
Bad spellers of the world, untie!!!
Nou ja, ten minste het jy "beter" reg gespel! ^^
I didn't notice any errors till panel four. That probably says something about my proof-reading ability.
Hah! I was at panel three before I got it. "Is Scott on drugs? Is there a ghost-writer this week? His spelling is NEVER this bad."
"meta-mistake"... so awesome. It almost means the right thing... and yet fails beautifully.
I am beginning to wonder how many of these "errrors" are on purpose.... hmmm, I am up to 11 and counting.
I don't know what is funnier- the strip or the people correcting you before finishing the entire piece (or just missing the point entirely). Hilarious!
I just spent ten minutes trying to get my comment to show up in the coler bloo.
By the way, Scott.... has anyone told you that you bear striking resemblance to Jason Hawes on the SyFy network show "Ghost Hunters"? Well, at least I think you do....
I find it interesting that everyone is pointing out "complane" in the second panel, but missing "irritateing" in the first panel.
It kills me how many editors plowed ahead with corrections anyway! But then, this IS the internet. Even if the joke is applied with a hammer, people will miss it.
Not enough errors in panel 1.
AAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *twitch* *twitch*
My favorite bit about the corrections to any comic is when someone misses the first error (or two). If you don't catch them all, you aren't qualified to "complane"!
I love how half the comments are still people very serious about correcting "complane".
Ahh humor, subtlety, general abuse of the readership. This comic has it all...
That's not funny!
Why aren't you falling backwards in the last panel?
Hah, i'd already spotted the first few errors before i caught on :P
Just be thankful this community is so willing to help you!
Nice use of misdirection. Everybody is looking at the spelling errors and not noticing how the boss's jacket pocket suddenly appears in the second frame an how your head is pointier there. Also how your desk is at a 45 degree angle in the third frame. Also how the whole thing devolves around pens, proving that the penis mightier than the sword.
I took a look at the "complane" (the first mistake I actually noticed) and thought "Weird..."
But, at the last panel, I lol'ed so much XD
this one was really funny. i also liked the fact that the last panel shows you holding the actual comic from this week: i love those little details!
I din't notice any errors...
BOO-YAH! TAKE THAT, GRAMMAR NAZIS!
I'm a copy editor. It's my day off. Please don't make me cry.
I totally expected those "typos" to be intentional. Well played.
Third panel, "there" instead of "their"
evn though your are a funcional illterate, you a funny guy.
I saw that train coming from the first panel, nice work
Awesome burn on the Grammar Nazis, especially that it is now painfully evident that not only are they incredibly annoying but that they CAN'T EVEN BE BOTHERED TO FINISH READING SOMETHING BEFORE THEY START POSTING CORRECTIONS!!!!
What horrible, stressed-out and humorless lives those folks must lead...
The REAL mistake, of course, is that Scott's not wearing an Infini-Tee in the last panel.
Took me two panels to start thinking........waaait, something's wrong here. It makes me twitchy, even knowing the spelling/grammar errors were intentional.
