Grading Tony’s Article on “Grammer.”
If you haven’t already read Tony’s shitshow of an article, you can read it here. I thought about editing the article to be an ass, but I figured that it would be funnier to break down his article section by section and grade him.
For background, I was brought on to help out with editing articles. For the most part, everyone does a good job. But I cringe a little bit every time I see a new article from Tony. I’ve pretty much given up on editing his articles because they’re essentially one large typo.
Okay, so here’s the title:
“Grammer.” Not off to a good start, Tony. -2 points.
On to the first two sentences:
It almost looks like Tony started giving a shit about grammar! Wow! Too bad that doesn't last, because it all goes downhill from there:
I honestly feel sorry for your English teacher, Tony. You were on a roll with those first two sentences and then you blew it. You missed at least five punctuation marks in that run-on sentence. Not to mention the spelling. "Crtiticized." You capitalized things that you shouldn't have and then you didn't capitalize things that you should have. But at least you got "grammar" right this time. -3 points.
Writing here is ok. Missed one colon there before the tweet. Formatting sucks. You know you can actually embed a tweet on Squarespace? It's not hard. And yeah, that tweet was just garbage. Embarrassing shit. -1 point for the colon, -4 points for the tweet.
Okay, so the first problem here is that you didn't bother to change back the formatting. Looks like shit. Not even going to go into where you went awry with the grammar. This is just hilarious. -2 points.
Final Grade: -12
Looks like your saint of an English teacher was right, after all.
