(YouTube link)

This kitten has found the perfect toy- a crocheted lampshade cover! The kitten is funny enough, but Grandma can’t stop giggling in the background. She was probably the one who made that cover, and now she reaps the rewards. -via Arbroath

Not Gonna Lie

This exchange reminds us of so many blog posts and comment threads that we can all relate. I can think of a couple right here at Neatorama that fit this diagram perfectly. The same thing happens at thousands of websites every day. Leave it to Doghouse Diaries to frame a noticeable trend so succinctly.

1. cliche
2. sarcasm
3. lighten up
4. over their heads
5. freedom of speech
6. meta

Of course, you could add 7. fringe rant (in all caps), 8. Godwin, 9. name-calling, and of course 10. typo/grammar, but that wouldn't flow so well and would make for an unnecessarily long comic.

I should be the last person to complain about proofreading. Even though I do proofread, I miss typos at an alarming rate. Then again, you don't know how many times I've inserted a typo just to get a comment.

However, when your sign specifically brags about attention to detail, you'd better look it over. This one contains both a typo and a grammar error. So was it a drunk sign painter or a very good Photoshop? It's my favorite picture out of Buzzfeed's list of 27 Reasons Why You Should Always Proofread. I also like Mom's response to a knock knock joke.
