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!!!

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterScottH

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.

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterC.S.Strowbridge

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."

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJoe

"meta-mistake"... so awesome. It almost means the right thing... and yet fails beautifully.

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterArin

I am beginning to wonder how many of these "errrors" are on purpose.... hmmm, I am up to 11 and counting.

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGreggy

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.

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSven

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....

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGreggy

I find it interesting that everyone is pointing out "complane" in the second panel, but missing "irritateing" in the first panel.

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterErik

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.

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJustin

Not enough errors in panel 1.

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDavid

AAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *twitch* *twitch*

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKate

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"!

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCatBallou

I love how half the comments are still people very serious about correcting "complane".

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPatrick

Ahh humor, subtlety, general abuse of the readership. This comic has it all...

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered Commenteroneoverzero

That's not funny!

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjmboyle

Why aren't you falling backwards in the last panel?

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCOVIZAPIBETEFOKY

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.

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMr. D

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

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterUkiby3000

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!

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered Commentertinilla

I din't notice any errors...

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRick

BOO-YAH! TAKE THAT, GRAMMAR NAZIS!

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterIzzy

I'm a copy editor. It's my day off. Please don't make me cry.

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterB

I totally expected those "typos" to be intentional. Well played.

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPerson

Third panel, "there" instead of "their"

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterROK

evn though your are a funcional illterate, you a funny guy.

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjames yeamans

I saw that train coming from the first panel, nice work

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPK

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...

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterZirconia Wolf

The REAL mistake, of course, is that Scott's not wearing an Infini-Tee in the last panel.

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterArtie

Zing!

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBiscus

Pure. West.

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJen

Took me two panels to start thinking........waaait, something's wrong here. It makes me twitchy, even knowing the spelling/grammar errors were intentional.

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermombalabamba

Brilliant!
