The latest comic deals with the ongoing siege of the English language perpetrated by the armies of MMOs and txtspeaking.

As a supplement to today’s comic, I present this:


The player took the time to correct his earlier typo, by… making sure he typed out the mangled word as intended. He was only a couple of characters short of “you’re”, which I assume is the word he was groping for.

Why must young people do this to our language? Can’t they just smoke pot and have drunken, unprotected sex like previous generations?

Oh, they do that too? Ah well.
