How to look foolish

Here’s one way: Show you have no idea when to use a hyphen, just like the folks at Yahoo! Shine:

how-to shine 2

With a hyphen, how-to is an adjective (you should read a how-to book on punctuation) or a noun (you need a how-to on punctuation).

    One could write a grammar book using only examples from Yahoo!. They seem to have broken all of the rules (and probably most of the suggestions).

      Terribly Write provides an introduction to grammar, spelling, word usage, and proofreading — using Yahoo! as the examples of what NOT to do. That was my intention all along.
