Your Gonna Love This Post To Much

If that title didn't give you brain cancer, then today's post is probably a much needed lesson for you.

See, we don't know what it is, but within the past couple of years it seems like your/you're have overwhelmingly become the most grammatically abused words on the entire Internet. You just can't go anywhere without seeing someone proclaim to someone else, "Your an idiot!" ...which, if anything, is a hilarious exercise in irony.

To help you all out, just remember that your is possessive. Example: If Dave is an idiot and for some reason you married him, then Dave is your idiot. He is your property, even if no one knows why.

You're is a contraction, short for you are. Use this any time you would type you are. Example: If Dave is an idiot, and you want to let your stupid moron of a husband know what you think about him, you'd tell him, "Dave, you're an idiot."

If you're still lost, then just try this.


That goes for to and too, too. While not quite as abused as your/you're, there's still a ton of mixing up between the two (oh god, another variant!) words.

To - this has a ton of meanings, but is often used as a way of indicating movement or that something has become another. Example 1: I'm going to the store to ride the shopping carts. Example 2: I broke my shopping cart to pieces with my fat ass and had to talk to the store manager in order to apologize for being a childish fat ass and to convince him not to press charges.

Too - this means in excess, or is a substitute for also. Example 1: I ate too many pies. Example 2: I had diarrhea, too... probably from all of those pies.

If that doesn't help you figure it out, we recommend this.


As a handy tip, just remember that Bryan literally ripped out a man's anus and then replaced it with the letter O, which may be excessive, so you might say that that gag went a bit too far.

Okay, so grammatical ramblings aside, why is it that you're going to love this post too much? Because over the weekend our IT department* changed some code around on the blog in an effort to make comments more interesting.

*us, but in thick glasses that have no lenses

We know that sometimes words are too hard, as evident above, so as of today you can now officially comment here with pictures and even videos.

Before, if you pasted a YouTube link in a comment, it would just appear as a bunch of stupid words and possibly a link. Now it'll be automatically embedded and playable in your comment.

On top of that, there are now codes you can use to embed pictures or even change the text. To insert a picture or pictures into any part of your comment, simply wrap [im] and [/im] around the direct web link of any picture.
Example: [im]http://www.picgifs.com/smileys/smileys-and-emoticons/beer/smileys-beer-817053.gif[/im]

(You'll get this)


If you want to change text, we've got codes for that too. Simply wrap [ma] and [/ma] around what you want to say, and it'll automatically scroll... for some reason. You can also change text color [co="purple"][/co] text size [si="2"][/si] and highlight text [hi="yellow"][/hi] to your black little heart's desire.
Example: [ma]HELLO WORLD![/ma]

But you probably don't care about those, so just focus on pictures. Pictures! See below for a demo, and have fun. Your gonna love this!

Cheers and stay way to classy, friends,
B&B

      Or, spice it up a bit more.

      It always baffles me how frequently you find people correcting other people about the English grammar you covered. Almost more frequently than you find people actually doing it wrong. But let's be real here, is there really any native speaker *at all* that does this incorrectly? Mostly the non-native speakers trying to get their international communication on right?

    2. You think that's sweet? You should stay tuned for next week when we integrate a moving background that makes it look like it's snowing and interactive swirls that follow your mouse around.

      And oh, you give most Americans way too much credit. It's always them, the native English speakers, who are doing the your/you're and to/too shit. I have a friend who's an IT Administrator with a master's degree that always texts things like "your coming over, right?"

      It crushes my soul.

      Frankly, I don't think I've ever seen a non-native speaker screw up your/you're. I imagine it's because they're more proactive about learning proper basic grammar.

    I must say there is nothing like reading a comment thread with people throwing verbal punches. In nearly every case, both sides can't spell. Or have any idea how to punctuate. I'm sometimes tempted to insert something like, "YOU'RE both morons." However, they must know already, so I consider it moot. Moving along, people. Nothing to see here.

    I like to think you inserted the ability to YouTube just for me. You got tired of linking to the steady diet of videos I post in your comment box.

      This whole post idea was actually born out of reading a politically charged comment thread. Someone was saying something like, "Oh, if your gonna vote for (candidate) than your a moron and your gonna get what you deserve when he drives you're economy into the ground blah blah blah."

      And all I could think was, you're trying to convince me who should be president of the United States and you can't even properly use elementary school level grammar?

  12. BEER BOYS ~
    Good stuffs... in an agonizing, brain cancery kinda way. (And, yes, "stuffs" is now the Inglysh languishes accepted form of the word. Along with "nuttin'" and "yakkin'". Inglysh just got much less pretentious! Can I get a "Yay!"?)

    >>... little red condescending squiggles

    Ha! I like that description. Those bastards mock me regularly. Won't even let me accidentally hit a wrong key without immediately jumping up and yelling "Uhp! Your an idiot!"

    Yes, yes! It's actually depressing to read most comment sections because they're all loaded with wrong "your"s and "you're"s and "to"s and "too"s.

    Also, literally COUNTLESS wrong uses of "then"s and "than"s. And how about "suppose"s, when they really shoulda written "supposed"?

    But my #1 pet peeve (even more then drivers on the freeway applying their brakes without a cause) is the horrible - and near constant - wrong, Wrong, WRONG expression "I COULD CARE LESS!" Allah's Unholy Trousers! Even writers who are suppose to be edgeucated get that one wrong, Wrong, WRONG everywhere and every time! Sheesh! Kill 'em all and let Miriam and Wepster sort 'em out.

    I swear, the entire country is now illiterate. Or, they be illin'literwritten, dogg! 40 'n' chillin', bruh.

    I NEED A COLD MOJITO!

    Now, I know what your going too ask regarding my newest BOTB. Gah!!! I really don't know this time. This is perhaps the most difficult time I've ever had in trying to predict how the Beer Boys are gonna vote.

    Alright, I'm taking a blind shot in the dark on this one. I'll protly get 'em BOTH wrong. And, yes, "protly" - its all good!

    1. In all fairness, when a writer says "I could care less", maybe they're implying that they don't care a little bit, and that if they tried, they could manage to care less. They just choose not to.

      Also, what's with the V in your name? I always thought it was with a PH.

    As to the whole "Grammar R Us" situation...
    Well, social media hasn't helped ONE DMAN BIT to alleviate it.
    If anything, it's ACCELERATED the decline of the English language, and since we don't much subscribe to CURSIVE WRITING in public schools, no help can be sought THERE.

    It all comes down to this:
    What we accept and settle for is what will continue.

    1. Between you and me we just hire the 8 year old neighbor kid to fix all of our coding problems and then we take credit for it because he's not old enough to be allowed on our website. Kids are so gullible and dumb.s

  35. I got a kick out of this and never thought I would actually see someone draw a person getting his asshole dug out. I don't know how to imbed something from YouTube but loved what I saw from everyone here. Now I want to see something funny you found on YouTube in response to my response...maybe Tracy Morgan saying "I'm a Danish Girl."

    1. Literally all you do is copy and paste the link of the YouTube video into your comment. What normally looks like http://youtube.blahblah will automatically turn into a video.

  36. Awesome post! I don't know why people confuse these spellings. I've also seen Their and there switched around. Head smack! Here's one of my favorite YouTube videos regarding proofreading. Let's hope it works.

  38. My eyes, my eyes! But damn, I can't stop going through these comments! I googled squat cobbler to find a nice pic for you, but why did I get a mom breastfeeding her baby? Squat cobbler also has nothing to do with goatse. Clearly the way I've treated Google in the past is coming back to haunt me.

    Here's how I correct grammar:

    2. Let me help you out here. That's a web link to Pinterest (which also requires you to log in), so that won't display here. What we need to do is go one step further and find the direct picture link, the one that ends with something like .jpg and doesn't show anything else but the picture.

      Not sure what browser you use but on mine if you right click the picture and select copy image address it'll copy over the picture's direct link, which looks like this...

  40. It's horrifying how many educated, intelligent people who hold important positions and have heads filled with vital knowledge are completely clueless when it comes to spelling and grammar. BUT they're awesome when it comes to math and science... so maybe that makes up for it...?

    Your new feature allowing tech-savvy smarties to add pics and video to their comments is super. Makes reading the comments even more fun.

  41. I was all kinds of flipping out at that title. LOL. I completely agree with you. You know my biggest pet peeve? When people don't capitalize "i." Seriously. What's with that? I get mistaking a your for a you're. Heck, I get typing too fast and it happens--even thought I clearly thought "you're." BUT, a lower case I? *shudders*

    1. What kills me is when people do that from a smartphone. I have a smartphone. It automatically capitalizes "I" every time. That means you have to WILLINGLY convert it to lower case.

    1. Well, fortunately with the video all you have to do is copy and paste the YouTube link. And while you may not remember how to post pictures, everything can be wrapped up with an on-point video. EVERYTHING.

  44. Damn near crashed my browser scrolling all the way down here. I'm a huge Grammar Nazi and still get unduly bothered by people misuing their/they're/there and your/you're. It's only super bad because of how many times we've corrected this stuff. Why don't people get it yet? Why? I don't see to/too abused as much but any abuse of grammar is still abuse and I, for one, take abuse seriously.

  45. Your IT team is incredibly brilliant.
    I hope I can get this. I'll be extremely frustrated if not. I found an image that reminds me of an ad a friend told me today - something about a viking going to war. I don't think this is gonna work. Does it have to be a gif? We'll see. I'll try again, if this is a no go.

  46. Love these new comments, although I have to say Pat's visual contribution made me want to vomit!

    I was concerned about the grammatical issues in your title. I'm so glad you gave a lesson about proper English grammar, and this messed up title was not the result of inebriation due to too many beers in the shower.

    1. If anything, we wanted to give our writer friends a small heart attack when they pulled up this post. Make them question our intelligence, our sanity, and our sobriety. With that said, all of them are exactly as you would expect, but even so, we still know the difference between your/you're and to/too. Even six beers in.

  47. At first I thought that was a doughnut. Then, I said to myself, "No, that looks more like an anus." Then, I thought, "Is there such a thing as an Anus Doughnut?" Then, I opined, "If that's the case, Dunkin' Donuts really messed up with that choice. I'll have a muffin, instead."

  50. One of my personal favorites is the interchangeable 'lose' and 'loose'. There's some people on my Facebook that remember the ins and outs of the pythagorean theorem, yet grammar, which we spent 90% of our elementary school days learning, still escapes them. Fucking blows my mind.

    1. I appreciate that that's your biggest gripe. Here in the ol' US of A we don't even have faith in most people to use the correct where/were in a sentence, despite them not even sounding the same.

      Example: "When you said that, you where dead wrong."

      Not even kidding.
