Bad grammar = no girlfriend

This is just priceless. While acquainting myself with StumbleUpon, one of many social sharing sites floating about the t'interweb super-autobahn, I found (or stumbled upon) this image (click the image for a better view).

It appears StumbleUpon user, Mellybee (19) was less than impressed by this unfortunate chap's profile on a dating site. Her brilliant reaction, instead of just not going out with him, was to take a red pen to his efforts and share her contempt with everyone on the internet. Good girl!

Through my tears of laughter (the drawings are the pièce de résistance), I couldn't help but notice, as I'm sure you have too, that Mellybee made a few glaring omissions and even a spelling mistake of her own. Logically the only thing for me to do was to correct her corrections. You can see the results here.

I am well aware that even with my input the list of errors is far from exhaustive but it's a step, at least, in the right direction.

I forgot to write about my favourite aspect of this bloke's profile. In the list of six things he can't do without, at number six are his hands.

Quick, ladies! Snap him up!

This is so tragic. I love the expressions on the faces of the aleon and bee; I don't think they're comfortable being associated with this Romeo.
