I love finding the mistakes in the posts that try to genuinely correct the comic's mistakes.
Seriously, people. Half you grammar Nazis aren't even real grammar Nazis. Just relax and enjoy the strip!
never even noticed any mistakes ever... guess my gramer sucks
ya see, the kids listen to the rap music, and dont know what the Basic Instructions is all about!
bop zop zoodebop deboop wow!
My favourite part is the people still commenting about the "errors."
*Twitch* *twitch* *twitch*
The last sentence: "You mite be misusing "meta."
The last sentence:
You mite be misusing "meta."
would have been funnier if you had said:
You mite be misusing "meta.
You should really check your misspellings more carefully.
Oh god. So many errors... please, PLEASE don't do this again. I was twitching like a meth head for the first three panels. the fourth panel brought me no relief. Needless to say, brilliant. But also dangerous. Do not anger English Majors. We have a very powerful navy. *ba dum pssh*
Oh how I wished all web content was spell checked and corrected automatically.
Very funny on alot of levels. I also was momentarialy taken in by the grammer misteaks.
Haha, you bastard! You were making my eye twitch!
Awesome. More clever? If they had only been your bubbles that had errrors. (I didn't even spot any until complane and then I missed a few more before realizing (realising?) I'd been duped. Nice one. Thank you, sir, may I have another?
Loved this comic. A subtle, hidden wordplay joke is pretty much the antithesis of what Scott Adam's recommend's. You show him!
In the last panel, it should really say "stupid moov" instead of "move".
My Grammar Nazi head has asploded. Damn you.
You, sir, are teh winrar!
Next week, do the comic in _blue_ ink.
Hahaha, It took me till panel 3 to figure out what Scott was doing. Priceless. =-D
I was surprised at first, because normally you have already fixed all errors by the time I see a comic. I like the way you slowly increased the frequency of errors throughout the comic. I didn't even notice the error in the first panel until I had seen that there existed errors in two other panels. By the fourth panel, I started seeing errors where there weren't any, and just became confused: after I post this, I will go find a dictionary and see exactly how you spell "stupid," because I am no longer certain. Damn! Now certain looks like it is spelled wrong, too, but I don't know how else I could spell it.
Well done, sir!
That was a bad time to start a 'find the typo' drinking game...
I'm dyslexic, thank god I didn't try to become and editor. Good one, Scott.
Brilliant!! Give 'em (grammar police) hell, Scott!!
I laughed until I cried at panel 4. The whole comic is good on its own but panel 4 is the funniest thing I have ever seen in any comic ever.
Eckselent. Trewlie Exsolint.
omg i was going insane.. i almost stumbled again before reading that last frame b/c i just couldn't get through.
very well done, not too many mistakes that i was thinking it had to be a joke, but DEFINITELY enough to notice. then again, we'd notice 1 mistake ;)
You spelt "errrors" right. :)
for those who complain about spelling errors in a comic about spelling errors, GET A FREEKING LIFE!!!
lol, i like how people dont get it.. and still post the "excuse me but in panel 2 the word..." <3 the comic keep up the awesome
Well, maybe I'm a total gramar pacifist (opposite of nazi?), but I didn't notice anything until the last panel.
See, it's really smart, clever, self-aware episodes like this one, that make me love this comic and buy the book(s) and android app.
Heeheeheeheehee... I figured it out in panel two! That means I'm smart, but not too smart.
This is great. Although, while reading it I got mad at myself for not knowing what so many words in there meant. Turned out that I did know all of the words--just spelled differently.
I can't believe I fell for that. :O
F-ing hilarious! Being a reformed (Swedish) grammar-nazi, I've never laughed so hard!
Is it bad that I didn't notice any mistakes?
I loved this comic. People should just read it without trying to be a 7th grade english teacher.
With the above bit of brilliant self-reference, I am now hooked on your comic.
That comic irritated the fuck out of me until about halfway through the last panel, when I finally got it. I still want to kick you in the nuts for not placing an "intentional language genocide" label at the top though.
lol no one noticed there is supposed to be they're, shows the lack of annoying-ness
