"dangerous" or AWESOME


Oren spotted this at an elementary school. Maybe they want you to imagine a mean teacher or vice principal standing there telling you those fun-ruining things.

That would be princiPAL. That's how you remember, the principal is your PAL.

Now, I am afraid to ever use quotations as they have become the grammatical essence of ridicule.

Oh, this is a brilliant, brilliant blog. I've got one for you: Everything you ever wanted (or didn't want) to know about Little River Tollers is at http://littlerivertollers.com.
This megalomaniac has "written" several "books" which are polluted with the dreaded quotation marks on every page (at least in the first book--I flatly refused to read the second.) The frightening thing is this individual was a teacher--mind you, I believe it was of industrial arts, not literature or grammar.

I like how they say "Do not play on the railings" and the add "dangerous falls may result from playing on the railings" instead of just "dangerous falls may result."

They kept the second part in a complete sentence!

That's hysterical. I know just the teacher too. She was yelling at a group of 8th graders today, and I swear some of them were trembling.

I would have liked this one much more if only "play" was in quotes. Would have given it much more meaning.
