In The Daze Of "Your"

It's National Grammar Day, everyone! A day when we, the grammar police, can correct our friends' Facebook updates, argue over the Oxford comma, and let our irritated snorts of disdain echo from the rooftops!

So today, I thought it might be fun to see how many misspellings and misuses of the word "your" I can show you before your head literally explodes.*

*Yes, literally. I once saw it happen during an argument over the word "alright."

 

BEGIN!

Oooh, starting with a classic.

 

This one always smarts.
Or should I say, "dumbs?"
[self-righteous chuckle]

 

Now we're coming to the really dangerous, head-exploding stuff:

Ouch.

 

...the pain...

 

[clutching head and rolling on floor]

 

STOP!!! I can't take any more!!

 

Quick, someone show me an adorable misuse of an ordinal number!

Awww, look. It says, "Happy tooth birthday Lily!"

Crisis averted.
(Though technically, it's still missing a comma....)
