I couldn't tell if Clarissa really still had to take some classes after this "graduation" cake or if she was being sarcastic. Regardless, good job graduating in "2002."

What's even funnier about this (to me) is that my mom always puts the year in quotation marks just like that at the top of birthday and christmas cards!

I suppose one (not me) could create a mirrored blog called The Blog of Missing Necessary Punctuation Marks. Your example underscores a rampant omission: the comma after the vocative, as in following the word "congratulations." I'm not so purist as to insist on "Hi comma Bethany," but I could be.

At least they didn't spell it "congradulations."

Heh, heh. Yeah, I was being sarcastic. I actually did graduate when I was supposed to.

not like they actually graduated, we were just making the cake a year ahead and someone forgot.

On my straightening iron pamphlet it says:

After using, always "unplug it".

I don't get it.
