Almost all of the posts on this blog are of misspellings and typos, but that doesn’t mean I don’t ever find more complex grammatical errors. Exhibit A: the sticker on the back of a bottle of Wet N Wild eye makeup remover:
The instructions for application indicate you should wipe a moistened cotton ball over your eyelids until “all traces of eye make-up has been removed.” Ahem. This statement appears to be absent of subject-verb agreement…
Since all traces of eye make-up is a plural subject, the sentence should read, “Moisten cotton ball and sweep over closed eyelids until all traces of eye make-up have been removed.” This is basic grammar we’re supposed to learn in elementary school!
There’s a lesson in this post, kids: if you don’t pay attention in school, the grammar police WILL find you and make fun of you.
