Don't know why I did it, but yesterday I read some article about the kid Trayvon in Florida. That's a sad, sad story.
But that's not what's getting to me. (I mean, yes. That is very upsetting to me... But ....)
It's the comments. Oh boy.
Did none of these adults (I presume they're adults) have a decent English teacher in 4th grade? Where did they learn to write? I don't even mean misspellings. That can happen to the smartest of individuals. But the CAPITALIZATION? Why do people Randomly capitaLize things? It's like they learned their capitalization and punctuation in Germany or something (They capitalize all proper nouns.).
Also, even though I said that misspellings are not a capital offense, just MAKING UP spellings is really not cool. FASHESD. ("Obama is a Fashesd.") WALLAH.("I was getting ready to go, opened the door, and WALLAH, he was already standing there!").
My personal favorite yesterday was "boneyfied." Try to figure it out in context:
"Shes a boneyfied model." At first, I thought they were accusing her of being anorexic. Then, after a moment it came to me. Bona fide.
I really do get that there are words that challenge people. OK. They're, their, there. I know. Yuck. But really. Boneyfied? Eccentera? (As in, "I think he's a jerk, a butthead, eccentera.")
I think I'll try one of my own.
The dog was phanteng because he was hot.
I give up.
