George W. Bush once said, “You teach a child to read, and he or her will be able to pass a literacy test.” For today’s post, I’ve made an equally stupid quote of my own: You give a person a master’s degree, and he or she will be able to pass a speling test.
(Yes, I spelled “spelling” wrong intentionally.)
I have an obsession with reading the weekly submissions on Postsecret’s blog. Although a ridiculously high number of the postcards submitted have spelling and/or grammatical errors, I refrain from posting them here; I typically like to poke fun at published material or business-related material because it’s more unreasonable for those kinds of things to NOT contain perfectly polished grammar.
However, there was one submission today on Postsecret that I just couldn’t resist posting on my blog. This person deserves a lot of credit for going so far in their education…but the fact that they’re receiving a master’s degree and still can’t spell the word “nauseated” almost brings tears to my eyes.
And while I don’t want to be too nitpicky, I feel the need to point out the creator of this card didn’t bother putting an apostrophe in “master’s.”
