Everyone has a pet peeve. Some people lose it over grinding teeth, others over drivers that don’t indicate. Me? I go nuts over people who can’t spell. And I’m not talking about difficult words like ‘antidisestablishmentarianism’ or even ‘encyclopaedia’. I’m talking about words we should have mastered by the third grade.

Thankfully, the humorous folk over at The OatMeal, are combating the desecration of the English language, one comical poster at a time. Like me, this poster takes joy in correcting people in their shameful attempts at spelling and points out some of the most common errors. So, join the war against bad spelling and check it out.
