Bad Grammar Makes Me [Sic]

This is the most original, clever, and humorous t-shirt I've seen in a long time.

(Speaking of grammar, please note my use of the Oxford comma in the above sentence. I hold firmly to my belief that it is not optional or obsolete, regardless of what certain writing organizations and associations may have to say about the matter.)


  1. I love that shirt too.
    I've been struggling with the Oxford comma ever since my advanced Spanish composition class at Gordon, where we were told that we should not use the equivalent comma in Spanish. I haven't been able to determine if that was a preference of the teacher or a general rule for Spanish grammar, but it seems that it is more likely the latter. I can't decide whether it is out-of-date or still necessary. Tell us why you insist on it!

  2. Leave it to Kate and Nate to over-analyze... or maybe it just isn't as funny as I thought! I think it's just a play on words with [sic] and sick.

    Anyway, who doesn't like to use [sic] whenever possible to show off the errors of the person being quoted? :-)

  3. I share your sentiments regarding the Oxford comma. Stupid Vietnam does not. Still, I continue to insert the unwanted things to my little heart's content.
