Can I add that if you live in Canada, you should stop spelling like an American?! So many people here spell words like “cheque” “check” or “colour” “color” and even pronounce words like foyer (foi-ay) like foyer (foi-er). GAH! We have so little that belongs to us, we need to keep it going on 🙂

I honeslt ywondered what the hell you were all on about when I kept reading ‘check’…I was like, what are they checking? Then I caught on that’s how American’s spell cheque!

One of my american students also had no idea was tarmac was! You call it something different…..can’t remember what though!!

I love that thing! I saw it like a year ago or so and I seriously wanted to print it and scatter it throughout town. I HATE when people misspell words/use the wrong form of a word.

@Coffee cup:  Thanks!  The Oatmeal, thats right.  I knew there was a web site that they all came from, but I could not find that old thread. Thanks!  My step son loves those for over his desk for his papers.

@takemyhand:  Or, if you’re American, stop spelling things like a Canadian! That drives me nuts! I knew a few people from high school who did that and I couldn’t stand it.

@Coffee cup:  I agree that Effect/Affect is hard to remember.

What don’t you understand about “definitely”? Lots of people spell it “definAtely,” which is wrong. I think that’s all the comic was saying.
