HUMP DAY GRAMMAR for May 18, 2011


I know this writer screwed up just one tiny word, but I think it makes a big difference; "a lot to come up with" is not exactly the same as "a lot of come up with."  One sounds much pervier, especially to those of us whose minds are perpetually in the gutter.  I get that this is a serious story, but when I read it, somehow my eyes were immediately drawn to "a lot of come," which caused me to giggle rather maniacally.

Happy Hump Day, everyone!
