Stop! Grammar Time!

OK, not grammar really, but who could resist such a pun?

Shamefully, two of these pictures are taken in a UNIVERSITY coffee shop. What is the point of trying to instil literacy into students when their own institution can't be bothered?

Would be funny if it wasn't so shameful though do watch out taking photos in the cafe, you'll be taken for a dirty old man.

It's OK - the staff know me, and it was only of the wall!

Plagurism rife again!

ps did you see the grammar mistakes in the paper on Saturday. My particular favourite was the one about a market that said

"Held Annually
Every Monday
From May until September"

What is really funny about that is that it is grammatically correct but some self important twit thought it was wrong. Splendid.

Great minds think alike… intertextuality… unconscious influence… I missed the paper on Saturday due to the Games, but thanks for the example. Perfectly grammatical yet still moronic. I do like it when pedants get it wrong. It's happened to me, of course.
