Happy Hump Day...and Happy 1400th RPI Post!


I haven't done a Hump Day post in a while, and since I knew this post would be number 1,400, I knew it had to be special.  

And it's special, all right.  Because it features the holy grail of errors.  That's right--for Hump Day, and for Red Pen, Inc's 1400th post, we have a public/pubic error.  A freakin' public/pubic error!  Yes, I'm a total nerd.  I live to find these sorts of errors.

Of course, I can't take sole credit for this one--this hilarious error was sent in by my friend and fellow Phillies fan KELLIE.  Thanks, KELLIE, for spotting this one!

To all the readers who have stuck with me through 1,400 posts, thank you.  I wouldn't write this blog if you weren't reading it, so I appreciate you stopping by, commenting, and sending me instances of bad grammar.  Also, a special thank-you to Mama Grammarphile, since I know she really has read all 1,400 posts--she's my best, favorite, and number one reader.  For those of you who haven't been here for all 1,400 posts, enjoy reading the previous 1,399 of them; there will be a pop quiz tomorrow.  (Kidding!  Maybe...)

Happy Hump Day, everyone...and happy 1400th post day!  The party's in the gutter, along with our minds...  Come join me there; I've got cake and party favors!  (Well, sorta--I've got Tastykakes and a red pen.  Does that count?)

Thank you both! :) I can't believe I've written so many posts! No wonder I never sleep. (Although part of the blame for that goes to baseball...and keps, I'm with you...LET'S GO, TWINS!!!)

Congratulations to you, Sweetie. Wow! I can't believe you have had 1,400 posts! I have enjoyed reading all of them, even those Hump Day posts that sent me searching for an eye-poking stick!

Love you.

Thanks, Mom! :) I'm glad you've enjoyed these posts, even the ones that make you shake your head and wonder whose side of the family I got my warped mind from! Love you, too.

That's 1,400 posts on why our Education System needs to be reformed, so keep it up. Also, how appropriate to find the correlation between public health and pubes, and on hump day? Congrats!

That's a lot of blogging to keep up with. Congratulations! Most don't make it to a hundred, let alone 1,400. And what better way to celebrate then with a little potty humor?

Congrats on 1400 (will the quiz be graded or can we take it pass/fail?)! I would have loved a degree in pubic health. I tried to do as much research as anyone would allow, but it was still exhausting.

LOL! Jon, you're too funny. And the quiz will be graded...I mean, do you really think I'm gonna pass up an opportunity to mark things up with my red pen? :)
