Was the writer for Yahoo! Makers referring to Forrest Gump or Forrest Tucker?
Or was the writer just showing us that she has no idea how to spell forest, and she’s OK with that?
Do you remember anything from third grade? If you’re this Yahoo! Makers writer, the answer would be, “not so much.” She apparently forgot how to form the plural of a noun (hint: it generally doesn’t include an apostrophe) and she forgot that valentine is not capitalized when you’re referring to a card:
I blame Rachael Ray for the rise in the use of the word sammie for what adults refer to as a sandwich. I blame ignorance for this Yahoo! Makers writer’s use of the apostrophe:
This professional writer has no idea what an apostrophe means when you put it at the beginning of a word. When dropped there, it indicates that one or more letters are missing. So, what does she think sammie is short for? Flotsammie? Jetsammie? Balsammie?
When I read this, written by the “managing editor” for Yahoo! Makers, I thought it was a little odd that the Donald Dump character would be holding a copy of the Declaration of Independence.
In fact, it was very odd. And very wrong.
Here’s the picture of Donald Dump and it looks like he’s holding something… what is it? It sure as heck ain’t the Declaration of Independence, which would make no sense, not even satirically. He’s holding the Constitution of the United States of America:
I can only hope that this “managing editor” isn’t typical of the electorate and that he’s not a registered voter.
