So I’ve started this post several times; I’m trying to come up with an intro to The Oatmeal and Grammar Comics and the semicolon. But I don’t have time to figure out all the mysteries of the universe, including what The Oatmeal is, so I’m moving on.
Personally, I know how to use a semicolon. Maybe you do, too. Maybe you don’t have a clue. Either way, you’re going to laugh out loud when you read How to Use a Semicolon. Same goes for 10 Words You Need To Stop Misspelling or The Three Most Common Uses of Irony.
Well, really, you’re going to laugh out loud at whichever Grammar Comic you read this Fun Friday, which is pretty much the point of Fun Friday.
I have no idea what the point of The Oatmeal is. (But there are posters of the Grammar Comics; slap the semicolon one on your classroom wall and your ninth graders will think you’re the coolest teacher ever. For, like, the first day.)
