Brilliant piece of work. I almost feel bad about wanting to run full speed and just throw myself into it.

"Per se" is a Latin phrase that means "through itself," "by itself" or "in itself."

"Persay" is a company that sells voice recognition software.

All those kinds of videos with someone demonstrating some skill or showing off something they made is always 30 sec of necessary footage padded out to 5 min- 10 min.

O.K. so I had a 5th grade teacher that quit smoking and his preferred substitute was toothpicks. So toothpicks were used as legal tender in his class for all kinds of contests and gambling. I was a toothpick king.

Thank you N.Y..

"Per se" is a Latin phrase that means "through itself," "by itself" or "in itself."

"Persay" is a company that sells voice recognition software.

"FloydA" is an anal farkstick


Pointing out when someone makes a common but serious error in writing is doing that person a favor. Next time, s/he will know not to do that again.

I realize that, in your specific case, basic grammar beyond "fries" and "burger" and "welcome to Costco" will probably never be needed, but there is a chance that INeedAName might want to apply for a job that requires basic literacy some day. My effort to point out that one should not write "persay" when one means "per se" is an attempt to do this person a favor. It doesn't matter at all on Fark, which is why this is a good place for me to correct him/her.

You, of course, are welcome to say "li-berry" and "nu-Q-ler" and "could of" and all of the other common, but incorrect colloquialisms that make the writer look like an inbred, backwoods, sheep-f**king moron. Given your career path in the food service industry, these errors will certainly be inconsequential and none of the rest of the half-witted recovering crack whores with whom you work will ever notice. However, some of us aspire to something greater than the down-stream end of the trailer park.

Thanks for your comment though; I really do appreciate it.

You know FloydA, you scored a cheap point on spelling, or grammar, or whatever the f*ck it was you were on about. But you should have quit while you were ahead because now you just look like a petty, whinging, douchebag ITG and you've only succeeded in making Ron Bennington the, albeit poor spelling, sympathetic character here. Nice job.

I neither scored a point nor any of the other nonsense you're trying to gibber about. I corrected an error.

"Ron Bennington" then decided that he wanted to fight the good fight in support of bad writing, so I mocked him, mercilessly.

If you are going to write for public consumption, run a damned spell check. Most modern browsers have them built in, and "persay" gets a red underline in all of them. It's not hard to write well.

You will notice that I did not reply to any of the other people who quoted me and posted deliberate errors ("chrissakes," "asholes," "toot sweet," "french benefits," "deja viewed," "irregardless," "moo point," "Sixteenth Chapel" and "alot"). Each of those were funny, and were making a joke on a theme.

The only person I replied to was the one who figured that posting "FloydA is an anal farkstick" was a good way to introduce himself.
That was neither funny, nor creative, nor playing with the theme of the joke. It was simply an unprovoked, juvenile insult from a newbie of demonstrably limited intellectual capacity.

Your attempt to "white knight" for an oblivious, adolescent half-wit who thinks he can earn credibility by spouting random insults doesn't really inspire me to think too highly of you either, to be perfectly honest.

People who are funny get my respect. Calling someone an "anal farkstick" isn't funny; it's not topical, not thematically consistent and neither creative nor original. It's just juvenile.

Now get over yourself, thicken up your skin and try to be amusing. This is Fark.
