Hilarious Grammar Nazi Gifts

by AbbyFitz

A self-proclaimed Grammar Nazi lists the hottest gifts from Zazzle that will satisfy and amuse the upholders of good grammar.

I'm a Grammar Nazi.

I have a passive-aggressive personality.

That mix of traits can be, well, volatile.

I won't come right out and tell you that you used the word "your" wrong.

No, I'd much rather wave my mug in front of your face while I talk about something safe, like the weather, and hope the subliminal message gets through.

Zazzle is full of such grammar geek mugs, as well as a wide variety of other items, that any Grammar Nazi would love to get they're hands on.

For the grammar police, I did that on purpose. For the grammatically challenged, I dare you to find what I'm talking about.

The Grammar Nazi's Public Service Announcement

Don't call me a Grammar Nazi. I'm just on a personal mission to save the English language and I'm starting with you.

This quote is the best way that  we, the grammar proficient, can get the message out that we're not the holier-than-thou jerks everyone thinks we are. It's also a great comeback for all the grammar police haters out there.

Just like any other group that's trying to raise awareness, our message will fall on deaf ears. But that's okay. We'll amuse ourselves by reading this quippy quote every time we reach for our mouse.

Now, just because we're grammar geeks, doesn't mean we're sexist. There's an equally haughty-looking female available with the same quote.

It's been said that one should help one person at a time and always start with the person nearest you. Well, that's why every good Grammar Nazi will have this handy grammar quote within arm's reach.

How Proper Grammar Saves Lives

The wrong use of a comma can off a family member.

Many people just don't realize the importance of good grammar when it comes to the written word. Who cares if I don't capitalize that proper noun or punctuate that sentence correctly, who's it going to hurt?

A lot of people, actually. Bad grammar can be deadly.

Don't believe me? Look at this sentence.

Let's eat Grandpa!

Kind of cannibalistic and disgusting if you ask me. I mean, so what if the man didn't give you your favorite socks for Christmas? There's no need to call the whole family in and feast on his bloody corpse.

Let's eat, Grandpa!

There, much better. Now everyone knows you love your grandfather so much, you decided to invite him over to eat dinner with you and not be the main course.

A lot of people hate the grammar police among us, but, hey, what we do matters. I mean, we're saving lives here, people!

Grammar...it's What's for Dinner:

Come on, Put Some Effort into it

Most people are lazy when it comes to the English language.

When you think about it, grammar really isn't that hard to use. Yeah, I understand people may speak the way they do because it's what they hear at home. I'll even go as far to say that maybe the school system is lacking in the English department.

But there's really no reason for anyone not to brush up on their grammar. I'm not asking for subject/verb agreement here. The simple use of real words would suffice.

This imaginary conversation is a perfect example:

"Hey, can I ax you a question?

Umm...sure. Will it hurt?

No, I need to know what pacific brand of coffee you use.

Well, I'm not really sure.

Supposably, the one in the green can is better for you, irregardless of what people say."

The English language is doomed.

But disaster can be averted if more people would just try a little grammar. Please, that's all.

Seriously...Give Grammar a Try:

It's Tough Being Grammatically Gifted

What most people would never notice, jumps out at me and slaps me in the face.

Image: Grammar in the DictionaryMost people on the planet despise those of us in the grammar squad because they mistakenly believe that we, the grammarly gifted, look down our pointy noises at the unwashed masses who make up the normal population.

Nothing could be further from the truth, however.

For the most part, we're not pointing out that anyone's ignorant. I mean, we're doing our best to educate those who may not know essential information, such as the proper use of a comma.

Really, if you think about it, we're raising awareness and performing a public service. After all, grammarians are simply trying to save the English language from being completely obliterated.

So next time a Grammar Nazi suggests to you how to correctly place that comma, give them a pat on the back, smile, and say thanks.

True, but most people don't notice that.

Most of the grammar mistakes I see are what I learned about in the 4th grade.

I am with you for the correct usage of grammar. Punctuation and spellings are important, they are the heart of any language not just English.
