A Case of the Mondays – Grammar Laughs

1 0 0 0 0

As a past 3rd grade teacher and public relations professional, I’m a bit of a stickler for grammar. I still have an AP Stylebook next to my desk and my co-workers come to me with their grammar questions. It’s not that I’ve never made a mistake. However, when I do make a mistake I notice it after and it drives me nuts. But not literally.

Anyway, the latest wave of memes and jokes about linguistics warms my little grammar geek heart! Here’s a bit of a laugh to brighten your Monday.

Not to turn this into an Oxford comma debate… (cue Vampire Weekend)

The standard comma, Oxford comma and Walken comma

Captain Kirk comma

 

I didn’t think Blurred Lines + Weird Al could be so good, but it is. And it’s educational, too!

 Have you seen any great grammar jokes? Please share them with me in the comments!
