Q: How do you console someone with
bad grammar skills?

A: There, their, they're.

I believe I may be allowed, in this instance wink...

You should only put a question mark at the end of a question, BOF. grin

Poor grammar skills rather than bad grammar skills, surely? <pedant to the end> grin

What’s the difference between a cat and a comma?

A cat has claws at the ends of its paws, and a comma is a pause at the end of a clause.

I’ before ‘E,’ except after C. Weird.

Sorry, neil, the dots were just a lame attempt to create a pause to build suspense for my terrible punchline.

They're reading section S of the dictionary so they're up to "something" - the entry for something in the dictionary. And that's that joke killed.

Love these and will use them on my grammatically hopeless boss.

Some little gems there - thanks all!

No. You've lost me. At the risk of sounding like a tit, is it Morse code or something? Even if it is, it'll still need explaining to me. blush

Neil - you've just reminded me: I caught my children looking through the "S" section of the dictionary....



I think they're up to something.

I'd like to sincerely thank everyone who took the time to help me to understand the definition of the word multitude......... It means a lot.

How many pedants does it take to change a light bulb?

Three. One to change it, one to complain about a spelling error on the box it came in, and one to check the dictionary (lightbulb or light bulb?)!
