The Oatmeal is one of my favorite comic strips of all time. From the educational to the blatantly ridiculous, I always find them funny, entertaining and entirely too time consuming (great for procrastinating….not that I ever do….and definitely NOT what I am doing right now).
As a word nerd and a grammar nazi – both of which I completely own up to – the grammar comics are some of the top pieces of creator Matthew Iman’s profile for me. This one in particular came across my radar today, so I felt the need to share it. In part because it’s funny, and in part because it’s so, so true. Enjoy.
He also has one about my favorite punctuation mark: the semicolon. (Yes, I have a favorite punctuation mark.)
