Whether or not you’re of retirement age, you’re sure to find this funny… unless you don’t like humour that’s a tad lowbrow. You’ve been warned. 😀
Hi, FF followers! Today’s mix of mistakes was gathered by your ever-vigilant Grammar Cop – me. Join me in perusing these abominable apparitions.
Well, well! It seems I won First Prize in a writing contest! My short story beat out 200+ contestants. Go figure! I was shocked, truly! (I wrote it *many* years ago but it was never published. Don’t ask me why I dredged it up now, but I’m sure glad I did!) I won some really cool stuff thanks to the contest host, author Dan Alatorre – another fab WordPress blogger. And a huge THANK YOU to Dan for all his efforts – he had to wade through all those stories! LOL. Here’s his site, with my story posted there.

Making Photocopies by Ellie Presner
There was a lot to like in this story. I wanted emotion, and I wanted a character I could connect with, sympathize with, root for.
In Ellie’s story, I got that and so much more.
The Main Character, as you will see, puts herself forefront into a situation easily avoided, and we are with her every painful step of the way as she deals with lost love and maybe a broken heart that appears to have never mended.
It was a beautifully written piece and well-deserving of first prize, and it was my honor to read it and share it with you.
This story, for whatever reason, spoke to me. I loved it from the opening lines and stayed with it all the way though.
I hope you enjoy it.
For winning 1st…

Looks like history is being made… but I wish it wasn’t!
Welcome back, Friday Follyites! Today the Grammar Cop has arrested two criminals for a total of three heinous grammar gaffes. Read ’em and weep, ladies and gentlemen.
Any lawyers here? Don’t read these… unless you want to enjoy some hearty belly laughs at the expense of your profession.
Here’s something a little different for loyal followers and new visitors alike: a list of possible blog variations I call “splogs.” A “splog” is my idea of a “special blog,” see? Here are a few more possibilities, and maybe you can think of others yourself!
