Here are the flowers last year. You can see the other ones farther down, they're eaten also. :(
But I did find this and it cheered me up.
A quick and quirky ‘Top 20′ list of the most common rules broken in the English Language.
- Verbs has to agree with their subjects.
- Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.
- And don’t start a sentence with a conjuction.
- It is wrong to ever split an infinitive.
- Avoid cliches like the plague.
- Also, always avoid annoying alliteration.
- Be more or less specific.
- Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are (usually) unnecessary.
- No sentence fragments.
- Contractions aren’t necessary and shouldn’t be used.
- One should never generalise.
- Don’t use no double negatives.
- Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc.
- Eliminate commas, that are, not necessary.
- Never use big words when a diminutive one would suffice.
- Kill all exclamation marks!!!!
- Use all words correctly, irregardless of how others use them.
- Use the apostrophe in it’s proper place and omit it when its not needed.
- Puns are for children, not groan readers.
- Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.
Alec has been so frustrated with the English language lately-- the rules, the irregularities of it all. He's thinking he might like Japanese better.
