you probably need to buy this


I just got to the email from Dylan alerting me to the fact that she is selling these awesome stickers. I thought you guys might want to buy some from her.

Why would anyone buy these obnoxious stickers?

Jennifer said...

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.

"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.

thanks for the headsup. I fixed the pronoun issue. Galadriel is right about the possessives.

Carly said...

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!!

Vireya said...

You've still got a pronoun issue. Buy some from "him"?

bethany said...

oops! fixed.

"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
