sounds "fun"


Kate writes, "I found this in a birthday card in Monmouth. Obviously the makers of the card don't want the poor girl to have a nice birthday!"
Alternative explanation: it's that kind of 21st birthday, this girl will probably be sick to her stomach or making judgment errors by midnight.

Oh man, so many different things 'fun' could be a euphemism for!

Kate said...

In actual fact what first caught my eye on this one was the random capital letters!

Jane Gavin said...

One might also argue that in this context, "'fun' filled" should be graced with a hyphen.

Jeff said...

So would it be 'fun-'filled or 'fun'-filled?

Personally, having a birthday sign in Comic Sans would ruin my day.

This card is a copy editor's nightmare. The random caps, the single quote marks without double quote marks around the whole thing, no period at the end of the sentence, and "fun filled" should be hyphenated because it modifies birthday -- somewhere my English teacher's head is imploding.

It's good to know that I'm not the only person on earth who hates Comic Sans.

It's made doubly worse by the fact that they used Comic Sans. *cringe*

this is truly derogatory. apparently "you" aren't important enough to be included in the Random capitalization Party, let alone have any real, non-sarcastic fun. but you're more than welcome to be FILLED. now that's just pervy.
