The Facebook Wars: part 1
This is a series (featuring some of my exclusive artwork, hehe. hopefully it will last, depending on how long my commitment lingers) showing the two sides in the major ongoing facebook wars. Firstly, the “Spelling war”
On one side, we have the grammar Nazis. A group of people with no other purpose in life other than to jump at any spelling error, grammatical mishap, typo, slip on the keyboard and/or mistake. In fact, a status update that would have been of no interest whatsoever to one of these people will easily become a top priority battle if a comma was mistakenly left out.
The reason is simple. These people hate words and want to keep them bound to the evil rules of their English oppressors. Or they get a kick out of feeling smart and patting themselves on the back for their slightly above elementary writing skills, but I lean towards the word slavery theory.
Point being, your sentence missing a period? It wont take 9 months for these unwanted cry babies to show up
On the other hand we have the Typing Zombies. Think the extent of zombie vocabulary “urrrhhhhhhhhh…..”, lets just say, in relation, the typing skills these people display would match that at their best. You know thhem best as people who “tYPe LyK tH!s!” Their chosen mode of social media interaction involves bashing their heads against the keyboard and sending whatever comes out. The existence of the typing zombies is the only reason we tolerate the pretentious grammar nazis and even support them. Now if only they had gas chambers to…..
Who should win: Grammar Nazis
