Grammarmobile



Kit, be quiet for a sec.


Batmobile, go back to your cave.


The General Lee, open your doors for…


The Missed Periods Grammarmobile!


This weekend I transformed my Corolla into a grammar awareness spreading machine. Together, we will fight comma crimes, save dangling participles, restore punctuation peace to the land (and, you know, promote my blog). It’s not finished yet, but I here’s what I’ve done so far:


The next one is a little blurry. It says, "Friends don't let friends write drunk."


This one is kind of blurry too. (Cut me some slack. I'm not a photographer.) It says, "Practice intentional acts of punctuation."


I just want to make the world a safer place to write.

The Grammarmobile is, BY FAR, the best car on the road. I can't wait for the world to change--one comma at a time. And we all lived perfectly punctuated after all.

Wow! Love it!!!!!!

Ha, ha, ha! These are great!

Lorena said...

Mmm... any chance that you will sell these? I want one for my car!

Jeffrey Beesler said...

And you're certainly making the world a safer place to write, one blog post, one student essay at a time!

Talli Roland said...

Bumper-sticker production could be a brilliant side business. I don't even have a car but I'd buy several.

Your car is so much cooler than the ones you show above. If I saw your car for the first time while driving, I'd probably have an accident from laughing.

Meg O. said...

Tere Kirkland said...

Ha! The General Lee is cowering before its glory! ;)

Georgina Dollface said...

For real? OMG that is hilarious! It would be so much fun to go on a road trip in that thing! (I just hope it doesn't get egged!) - G

So totally awesome! Ha!!! LOVE it. What kind of response have you gotten so far? I'd love to see a car like that cruising down my street.

PissAnt138 said...

Awesome, you should add "Honk if you conjugate"

Amie Kaufman said...

Oh, I love it! I know I'd drive right down the street after you if I saw you.

Mary Mary said...

Love it! I just don't know if I'd do that to my car . . . Also, thanks for dropping by the Sisterhood this week!

Rachael said...

Holy cow. This is absolutely brilliant.

notesfromnadir said...

Now that's a brilliant idea! I don't know, some people can write while drunk -- as long as they're behind a desk & not a wheel.

That spell chek slogan is epic! :)

Those are truly hilarious, catchy, and fun! Driving your way to better grammar.
