SOTP! Grammar time!

MRP gleefully brought to my attention the fact that, a couple of posts ago, I made an embarrassing typo. I had stupidly mixed up the middle letters in Paul Brians' surname, dubbing him Paul Brains. Coincidently I saw her comment as I was about post a photo of the same mistake in funnier circumstances.

That's a typo and a half. It's like the culprit is spelling's equivalent of Mick Dundee. "That's not a typo—that's a typo!" (Damn, I can't find the relevant clip on youtube.)

It gets better. I did a Google image search for 'SOTP' and found that the above example was just one of many similar instances.




P.S. For those of you who are too young to recognise the reference in the title of this post: first know that I hate and resent you (there is no better indicter of one's own impending middle-age than realising all your '80s and '90s references are irrelevant) then educate yourselves on the gospel according to Hammer.

I think I might change my name to MC Grammar.

Are you sure the line painter isn't just telling everyone who comes by to "Stay Off The Paint"?

No, my first name ain't Mrs., it's MRP, Ms. MRP if you're nasty.

How's that for an 80s pop culture reference?

Wait, I just got your other comment about this . . . so you're saying that you are old enough to remember MC Hammer but not old enough to remember early Janet Jackson? Hmmm . . .

May I just say what a comfort to discover somebody that genuinely
understands what they're talking about on the net. You certainly understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people need to look at this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised you aren't more popular given that you most
certainly have the gift.

I hardly write comments, but after looking at through a few of
the responses here "SOTP! Grammar time!". I actually do have
a few questions for you if you do not mind.
Could it be simply me or does it seem like a few of
these responses look like they are written by brain
dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on other sites, I would like to
keep up with anything new you have to post. Could you post a list of the complete urls of all your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

After I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments
are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I receive four
emails with the exact same comment. Perhaps there
is a means you are able to remove me from that service?
Thanks!
