What are the chances someone from Yahoo! Music checked this caption before it went live? Uh, none:
Well, at least we know that Selena and Justin arrived at the AMAs live. Maybe a hearse was just to pricey.
Is it true that public schools in the U.S. no longer teach grammar and parts of speech? And they haven’t taught those subjects for many years? I don’t know for sure, but that’s my suspicion. I’m practically certain of it when I read something like this on Yahoo! Music:
The writer is referring to on and in, two prepositions. How could they be mistaken for pronouns? It reminds me of the time someone at Yahoo! Sports referred to the word sissies as an adjective. Maybe it’s just sports writers who can’t tell a pronoun from preposition.
Are you a Nickelback fan? Wouldn’t you be blue if you went to a place called House of Blue in a city called Los Angeels to see Nickelback — all because of what you read on Yahoo! Music?
This is a house of blue, with door of red, but it is not located in Los Angeels (or even Los Angeles):
You should have shown up at the House of Blues in Los Angeles.
Geez. We know that the writers and editors at Yahoo! have trouble proofreading, by which I mean they do not proofread. So, you’d think that the Internet giant would at least provide them with a spell-checker. At least one error on Yahoo! Music could be eliminated:
A spell-checker would have spit out troibled, but wouldn’t have identified the missing words. That’s for the reader to provide.
