HUMP DAY GRAMMAR for August 19, 2009

Welcome to Hump Day Grammar--the Fangbanger Edition. ;)


I searched high and low for a fun True Blood-themed HDG post. Unfortunately, it seems like everyone who writes about True Blood uses decent grammar, because I had to resort to the old Yahoo Answers barrel o' fish for this one:


The "IT MAKES ME HORNY!" makes me laugh. A lot. And the lack of proper capitalization makes me roll my eyes, as does the frequent "!!!!" by all of the people who posted on this thread.

But the worst offense of all is..."tv serious." I mean, really? Are you effin' serious? (Or are you just an idiot?)

People that dumb totally don't deserve to watch True Blood and its saucy vampire sex. They should not be allowed to see steamy shots of Sookie and Eric in bed. Or scenes where that creepy vampire above has his way with fangbangin' women. Or even tender, puke-worthy Sookie/Bill bedtime scenes. No. People who are that ignorant should not see any of those things...

It might give 'em ideas, you know. And we sure as hell don't want these sorts of folks to engage in any activity during which they could potentially create grammatically incompetent spawn.

Have yourself a happy Hump Day...with a little bit of bite!

Something tells me they are like, you know, teenagers, or like just immature. I so, like, hope that they are not, like, reproducing or anything because that would be, like, a horrible blight to society. I mean OMG!!! Can you just imagine?? Like, more grammatically challenged youth, like, running free on the Inter-webs. Horr-i-ble. Totally!!!

OMG, like, you are probably soooooooo totally right!

Rob said...

At least I hope that I am because the alternative... well it is scarier than a pissed off vampire.

I watched this week's episode, yay! It was awesome. But Maryann HAS to go. I've had enough of her. They're taking this whole Maenad story way too far, especially since it was a really minor thing in the book.

It would be kinda fun to send a horde of angry, scary vampires after a bunch of grammatically retarded teenagers. If one or two of 'em got the Maudette Pickens treatment, then I bet the rest of them would just shut the hell up out of sheer terror...

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Glad you enjoyed it, Bridgete! And I agree--Maryann has really overstayed her welcome. I hope we're rid of her soon!

Random True Blood factoid: The actress who plays Arlene is the wife of Michael Emerson, who plays Ben in LOST!
