Whatever you do, don’t listen to Ophra

English, mother f____, do you SPEAK IT?

English for Dummies

Even though I’m a copy editor at heart, I can deal with the occasional typo, misspelling or grammatical error. I cannot, however, deal with a complete and utter gutting of the English language, and my head still hurts from reading this one.

This e-mail just came in as an anonymous tip to a blog I just started working on. Beware: It’s painful.

Unedited (because this is beyond help):

ACCAY BERRY CAN KILL YOU . If you have a seizure dysorder ,hyothiroid ,to take this diet pill can be killin you . yet OPRHA AND OTHER NETWORKS have been promoting this diet product for same time . There is no warning ,when you buy it ,what worries me more is ,that this diet promoter they know if they can go on ophra they have it made. Oprha must not take just any one wwith a pruduct like that ,talk highly about it ,then we as consumers have to pay the prize .. This is a freefall ,and it is hurting a lot of poeple .Before oprha starts to put her two cents in ,i would ask her to investigate this problem ,before one of us gets killed .

OH MY GOD, LEARN ENGLISH!

    Reminds me of the time in high school were a girl in ESL classes accidentally got onto the newspaper staff. We editors passed her first (and only) piece around for at least a week of laughs.
