    I know this is for Halloween, but somehow it reminds me of the Fourth of July.

    There is no apostrophe in Halloween

    • dculberson says:

      Before making grammar corrections, you might want to do a bit of research.  The apostrophe is acceptable, as the word Halloween (or Hallowe-en) is a shortening of All-Hallows-Even.

    • Shad Bolling says:

      The apostrophe’d version is an alternate spelling: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halloween and http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20101002044619AAReEIJ

      You forgot the period at the end of your sentence.

      Hey, I figure if someone is going to (incorrectly) bash someone’s grammar, I might as well point out their lack of punctuation.

    • There sure is. Hallowe’en is just a shortened name. It was All Hallows Evening, All Hallows Eve, Hallows Eve, Hallow Eve, Hallowe’en.

    • nunnia_bidness says:

      yes there is – or at least there can be. Both spellings are acceptable.

    Strange But True:

    The Leg Lamp was a premium / promotion for Nehi (knee-high) soda. Which was available in my neighborhood one summer. Blue cream! Pineapple! Lovely sweet crap.

    I also have a friend with one leg.   Unfortunately, his big hairy leg would never look as good as this girl’s leg in fishnets.

    Excelsior, you fathead!

  17. Palomino says:

    Don’t people usually buy lamps in pairs?

  18. annie says:

    My father worked in profanity, the way some artists work in oil or clay.

  19. Cynical says:

    Actually, both are acceptable usage: “fishnet tights”, but also “a pair of fishnets”. Might be a British/American English thing though.

    Grammar pedantry is fun!

    This is ME!!!! Not sure I like being categorized as a Happy Mutant…(but seeing that Boing Boing is a trademark of Happy Mutants LLC, I guess I’m in good company!)

    Next year she should dress up as a bowling alley.

    Oh, and I believe it’s spelled “MALLAFINGA!”
