Mind your spelling
This as a follow up to yesterday’s post.
Seems the f-bomb has become quite the expressive word!
News out of London….Ah the Brits.
“The Times newspaper on Monday quoted examiner Peter Buckroyd as saying he gave (a) student — who wrote an expletive starting with f, followed by the word “off” — two points out of a possible 27 for the English paper.
‘…it does show some very basic skills we are looking for, like conveying some meaning and some spelling,’ Buckroyd was quoted as saying.
Buckroyd said the student would have received a higher mark if the phrase had been punctuated.”
Hey, at least it was spelled right! And heckMr. Censorship! brought the thunder with punctuation. Extra credit!
These days at my job, the f-bomb is just another overused adjective. It doesn’t even carry a punch anymore.
But yesterday and today, quite the media darling. A meme even!
