Dear parents,

Explosion Pork!

Submitted by Jenny on Mon, 05/23/2011 - 09:14

The other day, we went out to dinner. The waitress handed us a copy of the menu and we couldn't help to frown. I think people would have a lot issues with eating "explosion pork" and "spray of green onions."

What they really meant was stir fry pork with green onion. I guess someone didn't check the translation before it was printed!

What do you use? Do you use one space or two spaces after the period? When I was in school, the teacher couldn't stress enough that we had to use two space after the period when you finish writing a sentence and start to begin another. Now, I just read this article that completely toppled that which completely shocks me.

Can you tell what this poem is really about?

Spelling checker
Eye Halve a Spelling Chequer

Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its rarely ever wrong.

Reposted from NPR (The original document is at http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=130103176&sc=fb&cc=fp):

Its National Punctuation Day! If that sentence made you cringe, then welcome to the fold. Its, it's. Your, you're. Why can't people get it right?

On Friday, Sept. 24, punctuation aficionados across the country celebrated the seventh annual National Punctuation Day. Last year's celebration featured a baking contest (here's the recipe for "Punctuation Meatloaf"), and this year, organizers kicked off a punctuation-inspired haiku challenge:

Em dash or en dash.
