A lot is happening in the world of grammar lately. My friends have been emailing me really interesting grammar articles. Unfortunately, you will not get to learn any of the interesting grammar news in this post, and that is because I just graded an essay that contained a typo that has had me laughing like Beavis and Butthead for the past ten minutes.  Here it is: 

It was considered sac religion.

Now, all I can think about is sac religion. 

I’ve come up with some of the commandments: 

1. Thou shalt not kick.
2. Thou shalt not enter cold water.
3. Thou shalt not wear blue.
4. Thou shalt not listen to Tchaikovsky.

Help me. I need ten.

7. Thou shalt not glance at anyone else whilst using the urinal.
8. Thou shall allow only one man to touch the junk (thyself).

That is awesome. It's making me think of that recent SNL skit with Bruce Willis, the "Boy Dance Party." Google it and you will know *exactly* what I mean.
