You, too, can grow your out hair just like Jennifer Lawrence! Check out this article on Yahoo! Shine:
A great photograph can convey feelings, emotions, and a surprising amount of information. It can save you words — as long as you pick the right pic. Here’s how a writer at Yahoo! Shine illustrated the benefits of coconut oil:
You, too, can be young, tall, and slim all while nonchalantly resting on a mailbox. Looks great! Hey, waiter, I’ll have another latte with Splenda and coconut oil!
And when I’m done sipping that coffee beverage, I’m going to clean my fridge because those miniblinds on the fridge’s glass door don’t clean themselves:
Then I think I’ll make dinner. How does spaghetti carbonara sound? Only without the spaghetti. Kinda like this linguini on yahoo.com:
I think the pictures and headlines on Yahoo! are far more entertaining that the actual articles.
Sometimes the most dangerous insect isn’t an insect at all. It’s an arachnid — at least when it comes to choosing a picture on Yahoo! Shine. Who’s going to question whether a spider is an insect? Not the Shine editors:
That’s just one of many hilarious photos chosen to illustrate a headline on Shine. Looking for the purr-fect picture of a pet? Don’t expect it to be a cat. Apparently on Shine, dogs purr, too:
Looking for the right way to wear a suit? First, choose the right crown:
If you’re still not confused, try this picture of a “stroller” that looks suspiciously like a baby carriage or pram:
And what do you carry all those diapers and baby gear in? A tote that you hold like a clutch because it has no handles or straps:
When your darlin’ munchkins are through playing with all their stuff, what do you do with those toys? Well, you could sell them — provided their toys consist of a cell phone, a candle for a birthday cake, eyeglasses, a deck of cards, and a muselet (that’s the wire cage on a Champagne bottle):
When you need a picture to illustrate your pearls, don’t be limited to your actual words! Just pick something at random. Nobody will notice.
This is one of those articles from Yahoo! News that actually makes me feel sorry for the writer. Clearly, English is not his first language, and he’s being asked to write as if it were and as if he were a trained professional. It can’t be easy. So, that may be why he thinks sing-a-long makes sense as a verb. It does not:
Of course, he meant sing along.
He may have thought that the adverb completely was called for here, but he’s wrong again. The correct word is complete:
This is clearly just a typo (I hope), so he gets a bye with this:
But “first soiree with Internet stardom” makes no sense whatsoever. I can hardly imagine what he thought he was writing:
Could it be “first foray into Internet stardom”? Anyhoo, the writer also omitted an apostrophe after Keys (or perhaps it should be Keys’s, one never knows what Yahoo!’s standard is), but helpfully dropped an unnecessary (and incorrect) comma after called.
English is a difficult language to master. Maybe this writer could use a little help — from a competent editor.
