Language Not Safe For Work

But if you can make it through Glen Gary Glen Ross video clip, you might find this amusing.

Wow, oddly enough I can relate to this video. There have been countless occasions when I'm proofing a paper and I have to just stop and laugh. This video is a great portrayl of what I'm sure we ALL have gone through! I love it! I'm showing it to my parents!

This is a very funny video and you know what, it has happened to me. I am lucky enough to catch the mistakes most of them because there has been occasions where they slipped by me. Like Cierra said it brings a good laugh though. So I don't mind it as long as I don't forget to change them.

Yep, been there done that. Although it is funny in can be frustrating when you are attempting to explain a meaningful point and things don't turn out like they planned.

this video is a good example of what could happen if we trust technology too much! The language could have been toned down slightly.

This clip was a kick to watch. However I have never found that many mistakes in my work. But I guess if I was in a hurry that would happen to me.

Brianna said...

It was funny, and definitely has a point. i can not say that i make that many spelling mistakes, but it does happen. i try to pay attention as i write though so its not too bad when i finish.

Nice Matt! Toiletry incumbent? This video has a lot of truth to it but kind of exaggerates a little. Mostly by the end of the clip i did not understand some of the jokes though.

Alycia said...

Haa. I thought this was hilarious. There are definitly common errors we all make. This guy really puts it in perspective though! Do not always trust that little paper clip guy on microsoft!

Brandon Root said...

This guy was good, certainly funny, but i agree with kristine that the language could have been toned down a little. Not saying i didn't laugh though.

Man that video was hard to get through without laughing myself silly. And I can really understand how that happens I have caught myself writting that way several times. Thankfully I have caught it just in time but sometimes mistakes like that slip through.

JLYNN said...

uhh language? This video made me a little uncomfortable. And I don't think anyone makes that many mistakes in one paper. At least I hope not.

maryn said...

I agree with you all it was funny but I didn not like the language. Matt you make me laugh.:)

JLYNN said...

Okay I would just like to reiterate that this guy is dumb. And a creeper. And I'm pretty sure that I spelled a word wrong in this comment. Oh well. It's my last one! Praise the Lord

Amy said...

This video is really funny. I know this has happened to all of us. There is so many times that i read through my papers and think "where did that word even come from?" At least i catch some of them before i turn it in.

Anna said...

I have to admit he is pretty good at that even though I didn't like some of the language he used. I guess it really shows how much we depend on our computers for spelling.

Jessica said...

this was pretty funny but the language was kinda bad. i like how its making fun of mistakes people can make i just hope in my writing i dont have as many mistakes as he did

Barry W. said...

i think the use of fowl language is what makes this video great. if he could do it in righting i think we would also see alot of commen typing errors as weel.. not just anounciating...

Barry W. said...

gosh i have watched this twice now on my own and i love it more and more each time.. cierra.. i would be uncortable watching it with my dad if i were you :(

Barry W. said...

i think someone should remake this video like the guy from you tube does. then it would be really neat.

This video was hilarious. It is so true though. That was a great comic relief for the end of the quarter. Nice job Matt... that's a great example of keyboard dyslexia...

Mindy said...

god this is hilarious! this is so true though. my friends and i are so dependent on spell check and we dont take the time to go through our papers on our own to see if spell check screwed us over.
