Ow. That hurt to read.
It's spelled evreything.
by panel three I was raging pretty hard. good job.
I love all the people that were so excited to post about a spelling mistake that they didn't even finish the comic.
YOU READ MY MIND. ARGH.
OH GOD.YOU'RE CROOLTY NOWS KNO BOWNDS.
Let me see if I can catch all of them, since they're there to be noticed!
Panel 1: irriatateing.Panel 2: complane.Panel 3: there (instead of "their"), pen's (instead of "pens"), Fifty Three (extra capitalization on "Three"), then (started the sentence, but wasn't capitalized).Panel 4: too (instead of "to"), seam (instead of "seem"), grammer, errrors, you're (instead of "your"), readerz, mite (instead of "might"), even (started the sentence, but wasn't capitalized), beter.
Thanks for the Where's Waldo approach to spelling and grammar issues :)
Augh you're killin' me here!
You- I- buh- GAH! *headsplosion*
I didn't notice the errors until I knew to look for them.(I'm generally quite good at spotting that sort of thing but I don't read Basic Instructions in proofread mode :D
Oh god, the [intentional] spelling and grammar errors made my eyes bleed. My heart is full of sorrow. :(
I love the fact that panel 4 is an "infini-panel"! :)
It just occured to me that the comic you are holding in pannel 4 is the comic that I just read, so in a way there is an infinit feedback loop of errors, INFINITE ERRORS! Take that grammer Nazis
All the spelling mistakes were making me cringe. My heartbeat was actually rising out of stress.The last panel, weirdly enough, didn't make it any better for me.
Love the Comic!
I see what you did there. And also, if I recall correctly, Scott hates the word "meta".
Panel 3: "there wishes" should be "them wishes".
I didn't notice any errors. Then I looked at it again. Oh.
I got it in panel three, and almost ruined my computer with iced tea. WELL DONE SIR. I SALUTE YOU.
But... won't having your errors pointed out now stop your editors from sending you three editions of your next book back for corrections later?
SUCK IT GRAMMER NAUGHTSIES!
You know technically he said blue INK, not blue PEN. There are SO many things that would be more annoying than a dark-blue pen. A marker, rubber stamps, etc.
Yu mispeled alot of words and made lots of grammer errers in this comik. Shaem on yu.
This is lame! I JUST started getting the joke on the third panel, and then he ruins it by actually explaining the joke in the fourth panel. Come on, Scott! It was somewhat subtle! It was clever! It was amusing!
Then you just-- said what you were doing, and smashed the wit!
Note from Scott: I was actually making two different points there. Sorry to be lame.
Sooooo delicious...yeah, the comment threads started to get so obnoxious I stopped reading 'em. Nice come-back, BI-style :)
Scott, consider this your D-Day against the Gramar Nazis! *salutes*
You, sir, are a magnificent bastard!
me found some errorz
Clearly your no Alfred Einstein.
THIS - IS - AWESOME!
So many coments. Old joke but I myself am a gramar and spelllling perfectonist?
