More Mockery To End My Day.

I'm watching Late Show With David Letterman. Kelly Ripa is on. Kelly Ripa is married to Mark Consuelos. For their anniversary, Kelly Ripa wanted to surprise her husband by getting his name tattooed on her wrist.

She showed her wrist to the camera on the show.

Kelly, your tattoo appears to say "Consuelo's." You know that's different than "Consuelos," right? You did look at the design before you had it permanently etched into your skin, right?

Here's a tip, one that oh so many people don't seem to understand: Just because a word ends in "s" does NOT mean it needs an apostrophe. This is especially true when the word in question is someone's name. Your cohost isn't named "Regi's," right?

This is why everybody should have an editor.

I spend several minutes every weekday reminding students that one does not form the plural of a noun by slapping an apostrophe and then an "s" onto the end. Now, if Kelly's husband's name was simply Consuelo and she wanted to declare herself owned by him, that would work.

I thought that too.

Our minds seem to have similar thought patterns. Maybe we could pinch-hit for each other in various aspects of our lives, if need be. Speaking of, think you could teach a three-hour class to eighteen tired and usually grumpy community college students, tonight?

Sure, I'll just go in and scare them with how bitter I am about dropping out of college. They'll shape up after seeing me rant. I'll even jump up on desks and scream "WHY?!" a lot.

It would keep their attention, and it's possible one particularly surly young woman would jump up onto her own desk and shout, "Then tell us what the fuck we're LEARNIN' in this class!"
