HUMP DAY GRAMMAR for January 6, 2010


I think this qualifies as a Hump Day post because Mr. Kemp loves Rihanna's humps, her lovely lady lumps...as evidenced by the picture above.

I'd also like to point out that this Mr. Kemp is not a Mark, but a Matt. (He's a baseball player, so of course I know his name. Duh.) If these Yahoos had bothered to check the Dodgers' roster, they would have known his name, too.

And seriously, where the hell is Mexica?

Way to go, Yahoo...screwin' stuff up one name at a time!

Happy Hump Day, you wild and crazy kids!

Great find, Grammarphile.

I love how "Mark" Kemp seems to be intentionally playing grab-ass for the camera.

Thanks, Proofreader! :) Yeah, this is an amusing picture. What's also amusing is that for a while "Matt Kemp" was the most-searched topic on Yahoo yesterday...and this article STILL featured the "Mark" error even while the top search was for "Matt." So inept...

I think "Mexica" is how you say it when you've had too much tequila. ;)

Nice. Does no one care about accuracy any more?

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ Bridgete: Haha! You're probably right! :)

@ Carlos: We grammarians seem to be the minority nowadays. :(

"The singer, 21[,] was spotted..." Oh, the guilty pleasure of commenting on commas.

Rumor has it that Mexica refers to the site of an ancient matriarchal empire in a remote and undiscoverable part of Mexico, where only women are allowed to live and work and rule, and men are periodically brought in to serve as the women's plaything... But it is a rumor, an unfounded one at that. :D

Ha! Good one, Atlanta. :)
