Did the victims of those deadly caramel apples have their left foot in one state and their right foot in another state? Is that how it was possible to have five deaths in ten states, as reported by Yahoo! Health?
She imports it! Or at least that’s what a writer for Yahoo! Style says:
I’d like to impart a little wisdom of my own, for the benefit (I hope) of the writer: Don’t trust a spell-checker to do all of your proofreading for you. A word may be spelled correctly, but a spell-checker can’t tell you if it’s the correct word to use.
Those wacky editors over at Yahoo! Style are at it again with their crazy-ass vocabulary and their grammatical blunders:
In their world, wanderlust isn’t an obsession or impulse to travel. It’s a synonym for wanderers or travelers (which, of course, it isn’t to the rest of us). Maybe. That’s the only explanation I can offer to the use of the pronoun their. It needs an antecedent (the thing it refers to) and it looks like the reader has to supply it, since the writer didn’t.
Me? I had my kids the old-fashioned way. Pregnancy, hospital, labor, birth, then head home. But for those who don’t want to go through that lengthy process or the ordeal of adoption or surrogacy, there’s another alternative: Store-bought kids! Yes, you, too, can buy a child, according to the genius writer at Yahoo! DIY:
Oy! Reading this sentence on the Yahoo! front page has given me a headache:
I’m thinking really, really hard, trying to figure out what “little needles can solve a lot more of skin ailments” means. More than what? Noxema? Botox? A whack in the face with a bag of nickels? And when did a headache get reclassified as a “skin ailment”? This is giving me a migraine. I think I need to go see my acupuncturist.
If you play fast and loose with English, you’re bound to come up with laughable results. Just ask the writer for Yahoo! Style who’s the new loser:
Armani is known for his looser clothes, which the writer alleges are minimal, which probably means they hardly cover all your bits and bobs:
I always thought his clothes were minimalistic, but I was wrong. But I wasn’t as wrong as the writer whose spelling ability is a real liability when it comes to the movie Inglourious Basterds.
