Why would anyone buy these obnoxious stickers?
Because there is a need for them.
Those are funny! If only I weren't a broke college student.
Looks like Dylan Meconis doesn't know how to punctuate the possessive form of his own name.
http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/possessives.htm"Meconis'" can be perfectly correct. I don't like it, but the rules allow it.That's "she," by the way, not "he." Dylan Meconis is one of my favorite webcomic authors.http://girlamatic.com/biteme/http://www.webcomicsnation.com/dmeconis/familyman/series.php
thanks for the headsup. I fixed the pronoun issue. Galadriel is right about the possessives.
Nope, only Jesus, Moses, and the very old classics [Cervantes, Euripides] get to use s+apostrophe. If any other "exception" has made it into newer grammar books (neither the MLA Handbook nor Chicago Manual, by the way), it's only because so many people have been doing it wrong (or ignoring it) that the authors just threw their hands up.
Those. Are. Awesome!!
You've still got a pronoun issue. Buy some from "him"?
"your/you're" is conspicuously missing
Dylan needs to win an award of some kind.
@lattegirl: Well, it seems just about anybody can win a Nobel prize these days, so....
But the one about quotation marks is so wrong! Diatribe here: http://j.mp/scarequotes
