The dialect that comes about from this prank sounds a lot like George W Bush's everyday speech ... and he went to Yale!

It's always funny when people misuse their thesaurus. Comes out looking like when someone thinks the online translator can write their entire french essay for them.

I'd still say it's all worthwhile if it gets the students measuring time in fortnights.
Paranoid? Probably. But just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that there isn't an invisible demon
about to eat your face.

GWB jokes, those are still current, right?? You're like the Jello Biafra of the internet.

This picstrip is doubleplusfunny. I liked how they used altwords that were spelled samewise as the basewords but plus letters ("Heart" --> "Heartoid"), and plusliked how they used altwords for low-level words like "what" and "no". It thinkmakes me of 1984.

I could have sworn that lachrimonious was a real word too, but google tells me it's from the realm of urban dictionary.

Lachrymose and Acrimonious are both words, though.
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.

Embiggen is an actual word that's been in use since the late 1800s though.

Maybe this comic is funnier if you have poor vocabulary.

This comic sucks, it's simply setting up a fake strawman with a position that is untenable and that noone actually holds, simply to tear it down. Just like every comic from 1800 on.

No humor at all, either.

lol just kidding i love smbc hahaha!
