Dear readers,

Today is National Grammar Day! As editors, we’d like to think that grammar is of the utmost importance. We can admit that it’s not vital in all situations – not everyone knows how to use a semicolon and that’s okay – but there are some circumstances where you’ve just got to be clear!

We’ve assembled twelve stories from our archives about times when people’s grammar was hilariously ungood! Enjoying!
