  1. As few of you may know, tomorrow is the greatest of all holidays. Tomorrow is International No Contractions Day. Yes, this wonderful time of year has finally come again to greet us. The day full of happiness and joy. Where not a single apostrophe to be found save to show ownership. I welcome you to not use contractions. You can not overlook this wonderful day and pass it up as another boring holiday started by the card companies to boost sales. As this day is second only to Sell Everything Phonetically Day. In conclusion I bid all of you to not use contractions tomorrow.

    Don't be so silly, I certainly won't participate. I can't see much point. Perhaps you'ld like to point it out to me and I'll have a beer instead.
  3. Good sir why must you jest?

    I can't believe my birthday is no contractions day.
  5. I've got an idea, let's don't and say we didn't. It wouldn't be like it won't matter because it isn't what's important to users of contractions.

    And I've successfully produced an incoherent post. Let's celebrate!
  6. Fo rizzle you all, this is a serious thread.

    I've got a million of 'em.

    Well, they aren't mine, but that's irrelevant.

    Is this the holday in which you sell everything you own over the phone?
  12. Ironic, you pointing out my grammatical errors in a post were you spelled holiday wrong.
  13. Two fails here.

    #1 - You fail to realize that you were the first to spell "holiday" incorrectly when he was pointing out that you did (hence his italicizing of the word.)

    #2 - You fail to spell "where" correctly in a sentence whose purpose was to identify a spelling error.
  14. Oh, I get it. :atoz:

    Yes username; you failed to see what I did there. Also it is hard to miss when on the subforum page it is in bold and underlined

    Also let it go down on record that the original title has been edited to cover up the grammatical error. :D A practice that I myself am guilty of. So sorry for "casting the first stone".

    That said while I acknowledge that have every right to use contractions; tomorrow I will make every effort to omit them from my speech and writing.
  17. So I was like watching an episode of King of the Hill and there was a flashback to when Peggy was in high school. She was like making a pie or something, I don't really remember. Any who she was in the kitchen(where else would you make a pie?) Her Mom came into the room and then exchanged pleasantry's. Doing so Peggy uttered a contraction to which her Mom replied something to the effect of "You will not use contractions in this household!" And I was like "Dude, that would be an awesome holiday." Thus International No Contractions Day was born.

  19. Poo, I need to be better at my spellings and my grammars.
