English Major Fun

When you love grammar, you have to admit that this is one of your fantasies. OK, well, it's one of my fantasies:

The Typo Eradication Advancement League (TEAL) is dedicated to a more perfectly spelling union.

This March through May, we, sworn members of TEAL, will be taking a road trip around the country to stamp out as many typos as we can find, in public signage and other venues where innocent eyes may be befouled by vile stains on the delicate fabric of our language. We do not blame, nor chastise, the authors of these typos. It is natural for mistakes to occur; everybody will slip now and again. But slowly the once-unassailable foundations of spelling are crumbling, and the time has come for the crisis to be addressed. We believe that only through working together with vigilance and a love of correctness can we achieve the beauty of a typo-free society.

(via slog)

They have a website and a blog.

I, on the other hand, have a cold. I'm going to go sniff into some lotioned tissues and watch more of The Wire. Cuz it's like that.
