Lovie Smith sacked faster than Jay Cutler


Yes, but nowhere near as ~often~ as Cutler.


Here's hoping the Bears trade him for a real QB, sometime soon.

I declare the Kobe Bryant headline crap

Ambassador to Colombia resigns after Christmas embassy orgy ends with whores stealing phones, laptops and pooping on the desks. Sounds like a typical Farc party to me

I veto this one because it includes my pet-peeve grammar error: trying to use a single "and" to join multiple lists. Subby meant "whores stealing phones AND laptops and pooping on the desks". As written, the headline describes "whores stealing pooping on the desks". (How exactly does one steal pooping?)

People make this mistake all the time. When I point it out, a common response is that it may be wrong, but it isn't a big deal. That's fair. But some people try to argue that it isn't wrong to begin with. If you're inclined to make this mistake, here's a fuller description. (People who understand grammar can skip it.)

The phrase "whores stealing phones and laptops and pooping on the desks" contains two lists. One is a list of the whores' actions (stealing and pooping), and the other is a list of the things stolen (phones and laptops). Each list gets its own conjunction.

You can't get far in life without knowing how to use the word "and".

You know, I was worried that a comedic-written headline lambasting a slimy ambassador would be misconstrued as confusing, error-prone, and you need to get a life.

/Hope my grammar wasn't too confusing for ya on that one.
//Just to clarify; "ya" is a vernacular term for "you".
