When I was nineteen, my LING 389 (English And Grammar Usage) professor warned me via email that I would “loose” grades were I to hand in any assignments late.
Ever since, I’ve tried to do my part to rid the world of poor grammar. Hope you enjoy my comics.

Life changing, LIFE CHANGING!
Love your sense of humour. In fact your sense of humour is intriguing.
Wanted a quick peek at blog and have been on here half n hour.
Showed your site to some refugee students learning computers today and who are all learning English. Showed them Grammar Guru post. They loved it. http://computersinhomesnelson.blogspot.com/p/fun-links.html
It makes me nervous leaving a comment to someone so grammatically correct!
So glad to hear they enjoyed it! Thanks very much for your comment 🙂
I don’t always follow blogs, but when I do, they are kick-ass.
I think I have laughed at every post that i have clicked on. Hence, the numerous ‘like’ presses. If I leave a comment and my grammar is off, please correct me. Keep this up – it’s very funny!
Thanks so much! Glad you’re enjoying them!
As a grammar nazi who loves online comics, you have officially made my life.
Glad you enjoy the comics! Stay tuned for more. Thanks so much!
Wittiness combined with proper grammar, punctuation, and spelling. You are a rare combination of thrilling attributes… and the English-speaking population is better for it.
Very flattering! Thank you Beth! 😀
You might have trouble illustrating it, but if you want a chuckle, examine the sentence, “I didn’t say she stole a book.” Say it seven different times… the first time, place an emphasis on “I” then place it on “didn’t” the second time, so on and so forth. It’s rather humorous how the connotation of the sentence changes as the emphasized word changes. I just remembered this little lesson while reading the driving comic of all things… don’t ask how they related! I have no idea!
These have come along way since we were making comics about Ali on hypercard! Well maybe not a long way haha. I am double checking this comment for errors as I don’t want to end up as an example.
Haha, and Ian “dunking on MJ.” (“along” should be two words, by the way 😉 )
damn you grammar guru

Oh hello there, Mr. Baines. 😛
Quite funny and cute, too. Congratulations on your life, good sir.
Why thank you!
Ahh I’m totally diggin your illustrations! (but then again I DO kind of have a thing for little beady-eyed characters with gaping mouths…). Thanks for the like, I’m glad to have stumbled upon this one!
No problem! And it seems we share the same affinity for slack-jawed characters: There is something subtly, yet profoundly hilarious about your illustrations. Keep it up!
Touchdown! That\’s a really cool way of ptutnig it!
I’ve nominated you for the Versatile Blogger thing 🙂
Thank you so much, Ms. Darlington! Enjoying your short stories!
I come here sometimes just to make sure I’m not crazy (when I see bad grammar or need a refresher of my own, that is). I got nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award. I’m supposed to pick 15 other blogs to nominate. I could only come up with 8 and, since I follow your blog, I picked yours. If you haven’t done it before, you can look at this post for more info: http://missedee.com/2011/12/16/versatile-blogger-award/#more-1048
I’m pretty sure the world will keep spinning if you prefer not to play 😉

I’ve nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award, you can head over here for the details
Hey, thanks very much, Chris! Glad to see your blog getting awarded! Keep up the good writing.
Hey there, just wanted to drop in and give you an award 😉 http://betterthansurviving.me/2013/02/15/the-liebster-award/
Technically, in your example above, wouldn’t “loose” be a usage error rather than a grammar error?
The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
Hey Mr. Baines! Hope the year is going well for you! I was talking with a friend of mine at college about some of our favourite old teachers, and pulled up Boggleton Drive to show her how awesome Canadian teachers are. You have now given Canadian teachers a great reputation to a few of my fellow Drexel freshmen.
You are missed. I hope you’re happy and healthy!
Hey, thanks very much for the note! I’m actually working on a new one right now. Stay safe!
