F my grammar.


Today, I realized that the nasty stuff they're making me drink killed off a few of my brain cells, particularly the ones that deal with my grammar skills.  But at least the "goo" tasted like chicken!  FML.

Fowl tasting goo...hmm could read two ways. Should it really have a hyphen to make the goo taste like chicken? Either way, my day is definitely better than yours.

@ Sarah: I absolutely think "fowl-tasting goo" should be hyphenated (the correct phrase, "foul-tasting goo," should also be hyphenated). As it stands without that hyphen, the sentence is constructed in such a way that you'd wonder if the chicken itself was tasting the goo. :)

@ Marie: I second that!

Would that be chicken noodle soup?

@ Jon: Ha! I bet that person would MUCH prefer chicken noodle soup over whatever the hell they're being forced to drink instead!
