We editors are a peculiar bunch. We get our laughs in ways that a lot of people simply can’t understand… No, really, a lot of people simply can not understand our jokes.
And what about this one?
Hahaha! Get it?
A friend even made a grammar joke cake for my graduation. Seriously, check it out:
And people say word nerds have no sense of humor.
But this week, someone took grammar humor to an epic level. I’m not ashamed to admit my funny bone has a new love for “Weird Al” Yankovic.
That’s right my fellow grammar lovers, if you haven’t seen his video for the amazing and wonderful Word Crimes, beautifully set to Blurred Lines, you are missing out.
With lines like, “You’ll learn the definitions of nouns and prepositions” and “You’d better slow down and use the right pronoun” it will make your inner editor laugh, cry, and nod in agreement.
So, take a few minutes to check it out. Kick off your weekend by having a laugh on those who can’t appreciate a good grammar joke.
