This one's for the guys...


This post is dedicated to EVula, who has always wondered why I never post any grammar mistakes that involve hot women. The reason for that is because a lot of the sites I frequent deal with hot men (phillies.com, mlb.com...etc), and since I tend to pluck grammar mistakes from many of the sites I read regularly...I'm frequently finding grammar errors that somehow involve hot men and not finding any that involve hot women. 'Till now.

Actually, I didn't find this one. PAT did. (Leave it to a guy to find a grammar mistake that involves a hot woman. Guys know how to do this sort of thing much better than I do.) He found a homonym mistake. He also found a chick wearing a bikini that's made from guitar picks. The former makes me happy; the latter will most likely make EVula happy.

Thanks, PAT, for finding this one! And EVula, I know this one picture of a hot chick won't totally make up for the insane amounts of hot baseball player/grammar mistake posts you've read on Red Pen, Inc., but I hope you enjoy this post! (I'll try to find more hot chick/grammar mistake combos to keep the guys around here happy. Cool?) ;)

I thought those looked like guitar picks, before I read your comment below the pictuer. EVula should be happy now, for at least five minutes.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Yeah, that's kind of a cool idea for a bikini, isn't it? Although it looks kinda flimsy... (I doubt the guys mind, though!)

I hope EVula is happy with it--it has taken me a while to find a hot girl/bad grammar picture! :)

So jealous of that woman....

I used to get SI when I was a teenager, and I wanted to burn the swimsuit issue, but my dad wouldn't let me because he said it was bad for the environment to burn magazines.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

"Bad for the environment to burn magazines"? Well, at least he *tried* to make a good excuse as to why you shouldn't burn it! Haha. :) Let me guess--he suggested you turn the swimsuit issue over to him for safekeeping just in case you got any random pyromaniac urges, right? ;)

Becky said...

Hahaha, I didn't even think of that! No, I think he's just really into saving the environment.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

OK, I believe you. ;) Good for your dad for doing his part to help out the environment!

EVula said...

Haha, awesome. I feel vindicated. :)

(though I also can't get over just how incredibly implausible that swimsuit is)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

I think it's one of those swimsuits that it's impossible to actually *swim* in...

But it's a pretty cool swimsuit. I kinda want one... :)

EVula said...

Well, it may be possible to swim in, in so much as "you can be in the water with it on;" I would think that the picks would cause significant drag, and if the straps weren't strong enough, it might pop off.

...which wouldn't be a bad thing at all.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Yeah, she'd better not move around a whole lot if she actually intends to be in the water with that swimsuit on! LOL. :)

I tried to make one of those out of grape jelly once but I couldn't get it to work.

No matter how many fittings we did I couldn't get the top to stay on her.

We didn't have any better luck with the bottoms no matter how many positions we tried.

Oh well. Back to the ol' drawing bed.

A Smuckers bikini, huh? An incredible idea...emphasis on the edible part of incredible, of course!

Carlos said...

Here's to more hot chicks on your blog...As long as they have a little more meat on 'em than this one. :-)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Haha--I'll do what I can for ya, Carlos! ;) I'll keep an eye out!

What I'd love to know is this: Why a guitar pick bikini for Sports Illustrated? It would make sense for Rolling Stone, but SI? I never though of guitar playing as a sport.

Borat Sagdiyev said...

Verrry Niccee how much?

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ Mermaidswheel: Maybe they did an article on...competitive Guitar Hero playing, or something? :) I dunno. But you're right--it would definitely make more sense to have this picture on Rolling Stone than on SI!

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ Borat: I'm pretty sure she'd cost at least a dozen vials of gypsy tears, and maybe your sister... ;)
