Literary Jokes

I teach writing classes for UCLA Extension. There's always someone in my class who will ignore tense. Being a dork, I will say, "Your tense makes me tense." Hahaha. I'll get blank stares while I'm laughing my ass off. I came across this little cartoon that made me laugh. I'm sure most of you will be looking blankly at the screen.

Cheryl said...

I think the elipses did it...they're so...evasive (although the parentheses always seem like they have something to hide).

josephine anne lin said...

I agree with Cheryl... the elipses are always leading to something...

Hilarious, definitely it is. Your blog should be an interesting one to read with so many literary captions listed under your recent posts.

Yesterday, I'll read them!

Sincerely
Nanda
