Semicolons: the only grammar related poster I’ve ever been tempted to buy

By | March 29, 2010

Okay, that may very well be the longest title I’ve ever written on this blog. New milestone! Woo hoo!

The Oatmeal, while not very old, has become an insanely popular site, and with good reason. It’s really funny.

I first saw it when I got a link on Facebook to How addicted to Facebook are you? and then How Long Could You Survive Chained to a Bunkbed with a Velociraptor?

Since then I’ve been pointed there a few times. Nothing there, though, is as truly useful as this post without giving up the humor:

How to use a semicolon

That’s just inspired and perfect. And it’s very needed; almost no-one uses semicolons correctly.

Well, okay, there is one other contender for most necessary and useful post from the Oatmeal…

Ten words you need to stop misspelling

These are important posts that should not be missed. You MUST click on them, read them, learn them, and live them.

None of you have any excuses anymore for leaving comments on this site that contain misspellings or improper semicolon use.
