All Your Cheeseburger Are Belong To Us

| Learning | September 21, 2014

(The teacher has asked us to provide example sentences that are grammatically incorrect.)

Student: “‘Won’t be you orange, Frank?”

(The professor writes the sentence on the board.)

Professor: “I hope this isn’t one of those silly computer games with strange words…”

Students: “Computer games?”

Professor: “Like ‘all your base are belong to us.’ In 2001, that was the first example the students would give.”

Students: “Oh!”

(One student raises her hand to provide the next example.)

Student: “I can has cheeseburger.”

Professor: “Now, that’s a great sentence, because you can understand what it says but it’s grammatically wrong…”

(She went on in this vein about the sentence, never guessing that we were all laughing because it was, indeed, ‘one of those silly computer games’!”)
