The Elements of F*ckng Style

Despite the current drama over the oxford comma, grammar really isn't that captivating. However, it's a necessary evil, especially for anyone who writes on a regular basis. Get all of your questions answered with straight talk and a bit of colorful language in The Elements of Fucking Style ($10). Just for fun, here are a few lessons you'll learn: pronouns are a real bitch, the positive form beats the shit out of wishy-washy writing, and symmetry is the tits. You're just a little bit intrigued in these grammar lessons now, aren't you?

P.S. One commenter told us it should be "However, its a necessary evil, especially for anyone who writes on a regular basis." Another claims "However, it's a necessary evil, especially for anyone who writes on a regular basis." We're stumped. Halp!

Clearly, WE need this book, too! Thanks for catching that, Bowers, it's been fixed! *hangs head in shame and slinks off to the corner for a time-out*

But it's not fixed:

"However, its a necessary evil . . ." needs an apostrophe in "it's."

Bowers is 100% wrong. Is was correct the first time. It's a necessary evil = it is a necessary evil. Janetor, your pregnant (and super busy) brain is getting the best of you. I'm correcting it back right now!
