During a bank robbery, don’t be a know it all…..
Maybe he thought you were all chickens.
Shoe learns that crooks don’t take corrections lying down.
I don’t know, given the fact that most ‘journalists’ do NOT have the IQ to pour yourin out of a boot, and as shown by this example of their bottom of the barrel ‘edumacation’:“Breitbart Business Digest: Fed Still Likely to Tap Breaks on Rate Hikes”
I was once walking past a newspaper office and a guy came out and hit me on the head. I asked him why and he said “I’m the editor”.
That’s Shoe—always opening his mouth at the wrong time !! ! ! !!
… then he laid me down and out.
Been there, done that, didn´t get to cash my cheque!
Why, shucks, Shoe, you’re lucky to be alive. I guess now Cosmo will have to write all of the next edition, not just 90% of it.
Shoe got his feathers ruffled.
As editors go, my hero was the guy, not an editor by trade, who looked at the document sentencing him to death in the French Revolution and commented, “I see you have made three spelling mistakes.”
Gramma police HaHa
There’s never a Grammar Policeman around when you need one. :)
Grammar nazis are no match for common crooks.
Since he’s a bird, when Shoe lies down he also lays down on the floor.
By the time he realized he had said it, it was too laid.
people hate being reminded they’re ignorant
Shoe must be from the educated side of the Dodo bird family…
“Does it hurt bad, Shoe ?” " Ever hear of anything hurt good ?"… Just John Mellencamp
Never try to correct an armed idiot.
H. Allen Smith was a journalist and humorist a while back, author of a couple of novels and several books of essays and reminiscences. I found many of them quite funny. As I recall, in one of his essays he recounted a continuing fight he had had with an editor who insisted that periods go outside quotation marks at the ends of sentences, while Smith (and I) contend, for purely visual and esthetic rather than grammatical reasons, that they should go inside.
Smith had been assigned to interview Tallulah Bankhead, who had proved to be quite friendly. At the end of the interview, Smith asked, Miss Bankhead, would you mind saying something so I can quote you in the story? Sure, said Tallulah, and she said, at Smith’s behest, something like, “I wouldn’t have been successful in my career if I hadn’t been sure to put my periods inside quotation marks”—and of course Smith could then legitimately put that in the story. After he handed the story in, the editor appeared at his desk and screamed “Outside!!”
Crooks don’t like corrections or department of corrections officers!
