It took me a while to figure out what the hell you were talking about.

I think I'll leave that typo there. It will never achieve the status of "Welcome to Marylnad", but it's decent nonetheless.

I've started editing my posts if I notice a typo right away. However, if someone else notices a typo (and it's not in a URL), I'll generally leave it, since it feels like "cheating" if i edit my post based on something someone else saw.

i'm usually weird in exactly that way. (unless it's bubblebabble corresting me. then it's not cheating, it's self-preservation!)

my "teh" problem is too prevalent to really worry about my typing anymore. I just run spellchecks when it's a real document. my LJ? man, too much effort.

Sorry, it was vague. And it could have been much, much funnier, if I only had access to a better brain.

Strange words coming from a copy editor. You have no objection to helping others cheat, but you won't do it yourself? You'll dish it out but you won't take it?

Blah, I suck at humor. Shoot me now.

I don't know, but it just made me bust up laughing (the startlingness and the randomness, not that I think the gruesomeness is funny).

I laughed too, but I'm afraid that was because I thought the gruesomeness (in this particular case) was funny.

It's the result of typing "shoot me now" into Google's image search engine.

"Shoot" doesn't seem to apply, really. "Munch," perhaps.

"Munch me now"? Not going there....

... and here I was carefully not using "eat."
Hm. "I didn't need that head," is probably another place not to go, either.

Oh, that's funny (but I agree with magid that "shoot" doesn't seem quite right--unless this is a frame from something with additional context that would make it so).
