Santa Hates Bad Grammar, Too

Since I’m running low on school-related material – we’re on inter-term break until the second week of January – I offer this as a Grammar Wednesday piece. A very dear friend sent me an email titled “If Santa Answered His Mail Honestly,” and this was the very first entry:

Dear Santa: I wud like a kool toy space ranjur fer Xmas. Iv ben a gud boy all yeer.
Yer Frend, BiLLy

Dear Billy,

Nice spelling. You’re on your way to a career in lawn care.
How about I send you a frigging book called a dictionary so you can learn to read and write? I’m giving your older brother the space ranger. At least HE can spell!



Happy Holidays, Everyone!

  3. Heh. I’ve wanted to answer a few student e-mails in that fashion. Spell check, people.
