I love this alot.
I laughed alot reading this *snorts*
I loved this!
I want a stuffed Alot
A 7th grade student I taught many years ago gave a book report and listed among the characters Lance Alot.
I prolly shouldn't read that.
I just sent that to some grammatically anal people here at work. Who correct grammer alot!
Aww, I'll bet Lance Alot is adorable. I can just see one of those fuzzy critters in a suit of armor.
Posted to my Facebook page so my fossil friends can enjoy it, Alot.
I think I want a stuffed alot now!
Posted that to my facebook page, so others may laugh about it.
BTW, did anyone else have problems writing a lot as alot?
One of my grammar pet peeves. Along with its/it's, their/they're/there confusion, and the like. . . But the alot does look cute and fuzzy. . . are they gentle?
No! They are very dangerous! See the example with the baby.
That whole blog is hilarious. Make sure you read the one about how a fish nearly ruined her life.
This is one of my favorite grammar related blogs:
Brilliant. One of the best things I've read in along time!
Bad joke, but I couldn't resist.
Quite funny -- thank you!
That just made my day
Holy crap. I clicked on this thread two hours ago and have been browsing that blog since! She is hilarious! Tomorrow when I'm not too tired to see straight, I'm definitely adding her to my own bloglist. I like her style. Alot! Had to join the fun....
I also enjoy The Oatmeal... they've got a segment on commonly misspelled words: http://theoatmeal.com/comics/misspelling (including "alot") and also a nice one on apostrophe usage: http://theoatmeal.com/comics/apostrophe
Thanks for posting the apostrophe link, english is my second language and I know I haven't been using the possessive form correctly with plurals.
I hope someday she does a post on "free reign," another one of my pet peeves. I'll bet she could have a lot of fun with that one.
ETA: Oh, and also "pour over" for "pore over." That's a recent one that's really been getting on my nerves.
