This really stinks.


Something about this quiz result is really crappy.

I can understand why Eeyore looks so sad. I'd be gloomy, too, if I had to hang around someone named Winnie the Poo all the time.

Ahhh, random Facebook quiz-writer...way to stink up the spelling of poor Winnie the Pooh's name! Sigh.

Poor Ol' Pooh.

Poor Pooh, indeed!

Walter said...

Oh come one, who doesn't know how to spell Winnie the Pooh's name. Seriously, people.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

I guess whoever misspelled that didn't watch enough Disney movies, or read enough books, as a kid!

Stinky indeed!

Oh bother!

That's a FB "crapp" for you.

They must be outsourcing. Surely a mistake like this wouldn't be made by someone who grew up in the U.S.

Bridgete said...

Oh bother! ;)

The Facebook quizzes are so full of misspellings, I've quit taking them. It's terrible. I would love to see FB offer a spell-check feature for all their posts. My 15-year-old son's posts are atrocious (sadly, he got his dad's spelling gene, not mine)!

@ ChicagoLady & Bridgete: Hahaha! (Great minds think alike!) :)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ The Punctuator: Haha--as in "crapplication"? :)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ Carlos: yeah, you could be right about that...how could any American not know how to spell "Winnie the Pooh"? Haven't we all sort of grown up with that character? :)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ MarieC: That's a GREAT idea! I wish they'd do that, too.

Maybe you could point your son in the direction of some of the grammar quiz applications on Facebook to help him out a little... :) There are a few cute/well-written ones on there...

I don't think I've taken a FB quiz that *doesn't* have some sort of typo in it... sigh.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Sadly, I think the same is true for me...

I've been saying that any moron can make a FB quiz. I was proven correct.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Ha! Proven correct, indeed.
