I’m tired of fighting, I’ll call it AuxCon.
Since I read this thread without context, here is my interpretation:
“Auxcon: The sensation of being too tired to continue fighting. Example: ‘I feel Auxcon after debating with my brother over the importance of the Oxford Comma.’ ” – The lastest entry in Josiah’s New Dictionary, available for pre-order this Black Friday.
10/10 would buy said dictionary
10/10 want to know what on earth is in said dictionary.
Jeff, that has entered the ranks of my favorite Not-forum comments.
Heh, now I need to see what my brother thinks of the Oxford Comma.
He could prefer the Oxford Comma, despise the Oxford Comma, or express apathy towards the Oxford Comma. I found this handy video on the Oxford Comma debate, one that tries to explain its advantages and disadvantages without picking sides:
I never thought this day would come.
I felt like that was pretty clear.
Oxford comma is important…though in my mom’s highschool (and elementary and middle), it wasn’t taught. The college she went to, she only went to get her EMT certification, so they also didn’t teach the Oxford comma in those classes.
My favorite example of the importance of the Oxford comma may not be suitable for younger readers, proceed at your own risk.
I went to the White House to party with strippers, Obama and trump.
I went to the White House to party with strippers, Obama, and trump.
The first sentence implies that Trump and Obama are strippers. Use the Oxford comma to save yourself from mental images.
That’s my PSA for the day
I love how a thread I started about something completely unrelated turned into a thread about grammar.
I’m still not sure which day Manalive was referring to . Was it “11-11-17”, “Saturday”, “the day Josiah’s dictionary was announced”, “the day the Oxford Comma debate made it to the Not-Forum”, “the day Josiah gave up and agreed to call it ‘AuxCon’ “, or some other day? All of those days coincided with each other, so I was hoping that Manalive would clarify which day he actually thought wouldn’t come.
*which day he never thought would come
I suspect it was the day that Gangsta Carrot returned.
Gangsta carrot is the best
Potato mentioned that she really didn’t like Tingle, so I decided to change it, since I was getting slightly tired of him anyway.
I don’t like tingle either
Yup, I think most people don’t.
Gangsta Carrot is still my favorite icon on here…
*insert MLG airhorn noise*
I’m glad you’ve finally accepted the name, Josiah.
Also, Auxford comma, guys. Auxford comma.
Yeah, and then we don’t have to to Auxford to have it!
