HUMP DAY GRAMMAR for July 22, 2009

Sometimes bad search engine strings happen to good people.

The fine, funny folks over at ProgressiveBoink.com (a name that sounds totally appropriate for inclusion in a Hump Day Grammar post) have listed some of their search engine strings* on their website. And they are hi-freakin'-larious. Especially the last one on the list...



I'm a girl, so I don't have a penis. But if I were a guy and I did have a penis, and I happened to be the sort of person who misplaced my modifiers in awful, awful ways like this, I bet my penis would be frightened enough to go away, too. In that instance, I couldn't blame it--it would only be following the first body part to jump ship (clearly if I'd made such an egregious word-related screw-up, it's just evidence that, for some reason, my brain was obviously my first body part to go away).

Anyway, now that you've had your Hump Day giggle for the day, head on over to ProgressiveBoink.com if you're in need of something else to amuse you. They write funny stuff, too. They also write baseball-related stuff sometimes. I dig 'em.

Happy Hump Day, everyone!

* Just to clarify, I'm pretty sure this mistake wasn't made by someone at ProgressiveBoink; I'm sure this error came verbatim, directly from the moron who was searching for information.

Man, I've been looking for a good progressive boink for a while...

Oh, wait.

OMG. I had to send this to the other intern that shares my office, otherwise he was going to wonder why I was sitting here laughing.

Poor guy. That really is a terrible problem he has. ;)

@ EVula: Just try not to boink with anyone whose fun parts are gonna randomly go away... ;)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ Bridgete: LOL! I hope your co-worker got a giggle out of this post, too.

And yeah, that IS a terrible problem, but at least it makes it so that he cannot reproduce. I suspect that's a GOOD thing for the rest of us. ;)

Grammarphile, no one I'd be boinking (progressively or otherwise) would have need for that particular search term. ;)

(that said, randomly disappearing body parts are definitely a solid "turn off" item)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

LOL! That's what I figured, EVula. :)

And yeah, I have to agree that randomly disappearing body parts are a turn-off. However, if they're red and swollen like that bad writer dude's was...well, I don't want 'em near me anyway, so in THAT case, I don't suppose I'd mind 'em disappearing...

So...ummm...the author of the last question was who, Houdini?

"Houdini's Great Vanishing Penis"

Yeah, I could TOTALLY see THAT on a marquee...

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Ha! Well, that sure one-ups the old "watch me pull a rabbit outta my hat" trick... ;)
