The caveman cometh...


Red Pen, Inc. reader WINONA tipped me off to this crazy website's existence. She says: My husband found this site while searching for jobs online--the job posting was that they'd pay you $4 to write a 2000-word minimum story about how to pick up women. Not only is the posting hilarious (and hilariously cheap), the site itself is wonderful on all levels. Get out your red pen--and that's just for the main page--run-ons galore, with some apostrophe catastrophes thrown in for good measure! The constant references to "woman" instead of "women" make me think of either cavemen or Animal the Muppet.

I only took a screen shot of part of the main page. I couldn't read any more of it because I thought I might die of laughter. Not only does the author of this site have a problem with punctuation and obvious issues with homonyms, but he really does talk like a caveman. "WINGMAN LEARN HOW TO PICK UP MORE WOMAN!" Hmmm, is that what he does before he clubs her over the head for, like, not picking enough berries or forgetting to wash his woolly mammoth-fur jacket?

I wonder if the Wingman is also the goober behind this crappy caveman-style writing...

Thanks, WINONA, for finding this hilarious website!

First Tarzan gets a new job, then he gets a car and this plate: https://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=6171928047228186437&postID=4655853503232048562 and now he's running his own site. He's really coming into his own lately!

LOLOLOL! I was shocked to see that that looked like a real car, not like the Flintstones' car... :)

The misuse of lose and loose is one of my biggest pet peeves! Argh!

It's one of mine, too; sadly, I see this mistake all too often!
