8 Grammar Jokes To Start Your Day Off Right

It’s a special breed of person who enjoys a good grammar joke.

And I believe many of you, like me, are fond of them.

So if you keep a copy of Strunk and White on your desk, today’s post is for you.

Here’s 8 pretty darn good grammar jokes.

    My favorite: A panda walks into a cafe and orders a sandwich. He eats it, then pulls out a gun and fires two shots into the ceiling. He walks to the door where the manager intercepts him. ‘What the hell did you do that for?’, he asks. ‘I’m a panda,’ the bear says, ‘You could look it up’, and hands him a badly punctuated copy of a wildlife manual. Sure enough, the entry reads: Panda – a large black and white bear native to China. Eats, shoots, and leaves.

    Love it! By the way, according to several sources, the collective noun for squid is “shoal,” though there seems to be an effort to rename it to “squad.” 🙂

  16. Yes, misplaced commas can induce comas–as in “Let’s eat Gramma.” Family time in the extreme.

    English apostrophes are sneaking their way into German now. Showing up at the funniest places. Never know whether I should laugh or whine 🙂

  27. My favorite was the “well done, well-done, or well, done” strip. Reminds me of the time I looked at my resume and realized I used hyphens instead of en dashes for date ranges. The horror!

  28. So funny! My favorite was the first one, people need to learn how to use apostrophes, and that they don’t make plurals!
