I love this. This is a great example of how punctuation can misconstrue a statement like:
Grammar: Knowing your shit.
Knowing you’re shit.
Let’s help uncle Jack off the horse.
Let’s help uncle jack off the horse.
In addition to liking this post in general, I wanted to [Like] the specific comment by Druggie Diaries but could not find a button for doing that.
I agree. I liked ‘Druggie Diary’ s entry too as well as your own example. succinct and brilliant 🙂
Ah! These are great too!
Or, “Lets eat, Grandma!” and “Lets eat Grandma!”
Isn’t there something about the crucifixion too? I tell you (,) this day (,) you will be with me in paradise. Might be an urban legend, though..
You say that… But there was a news story a few years ago, about a guy in China who got instructions off of the Internet, and drove of to a quarry. Then self crucified himself. And yes, died from it.
Lots of strange things happen, particularly in death…
That’s a very odd story. Death is very mysterious in general, but that is a very baffling way for someone to die.
It wasn’t intended. It was clear that the guy was trying to have a transcendental experience. It certainly wasn’t a suicide, no notes or anything. Apparently, he was known for doing these sorts of things, being a devout Christian.
And no, I know of no devout Christian who would do that, though some people do go through being flogged then put upon a cross for religious purposes.
It got featured in Private Eye Magazine, and Fortean Times. Fortean Times records a lot of strange deaths.
… And tragic, most of all. I hadn’t heard of that story.
OMG man had to make a bee line for the potty for this one!
It is amazing how a little thing like where you punctuate can change the meaning so easily. Great work!
You gotta take a shower after throwing a baby. They always spit up on you when you’re winding up for the pitch.
Haha. This justifies the existence of grammar nazis!
🙂 LOL Would that have anything to do with a boning baby boy. If you throw him, will he bounce?
So very true. The same holds true with pauses in speech. My mother used to drive my dad crazy in the car when they drove past a certain road sign that read “Stop ahead” she would say it, “Stop a head”. Made my dad nuts.
Reblogged this on Sir's little darling and commented:
Communication- it is ALL about communication.
Haha thanks for making me smile today 🙂
Done. Whats next?
This is hilarious! Great work
Reblogged this on Book Reviews by the Reluctant Retiree and commented:
Now this, I laughed at!
Such succinct directions. One question: the shower already was on the agenda when the throwable tike turned up, no? Else, you need to streamline your toss. Thanks. Actually did Laugh out Loud. And I enjoyed the journey to get to this witticism.

Now this made my day! Who was it said “Size matters?”
I’m pretty heavy handed with commas
You seem to be effortlessly witty. Pleasant read!
Misplaced, commas are the best.
