RED PEN, INC. 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS: DAY 8

On the eighth day of Christmas, this not-so-very-wise man gave to me...

Frankincense and myrrh--improperly spelled, of course. (If these wise men were so wise, couldn't they have either taught everyone the proper way to spell these words, or brought less complicatedly-spelled gifts? Sheesh.)

Haha! I bet he would! :)

Please, oh please, tell me this was from a mass e-mail and not something published on a website (which would, I presume, involve some kind of editing process). I mean, "murr"? Really?

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Nope, Editrix--I found this one on a website. Sad, huh? I guess the quality of this writer's editing process ranks somewhere between "quite flawed" and "nonexistent"...
