Dear fellow tax hikers, over the past few weeks we have had to delete a larger number of user comments than usual. Most of them are from the Hochscheid Hippos. Some are not, which we believe includes the one below.
For this weekend's contest, we ask all of you to guess the number of grammatical errors in the following comment, posted by user Unemployed Editor:
"At least the Rowan's both have jobs unlike some Colerain familys I
could name. Hope the wife doesn't screw her's up anymore, wonder what
the wistle blower would say them."
FYI: our working definition of grammatical errors is to broadly include all offenses against the English language. At this point, we don't need you to spend time correcting the many errors or rewriting it using proper English. We'll get to that later. Just submit the number of errors by 10:00 PM Sunday.
2/11 update: For the benefit of the English-challenged user, we are going to rewrite the above slam using proper English. A more educated person would likely have written:
"At least the Rowans both have jobs unlike some Colerain families I could name. Hope the wife doesn't screw hers up anymore. Wonder what The Whistleblower would say then."
There are some who would say "anymore" should be split into two words. Some feel otherwise. We will not tackle that ongoing English dispute here at Republicans for Higher Taxes.
