Description

The English language is an ever changing and complex thing, and for every English language 'stickler' who never puts a foot wrong there is somebody bamboozled and befuddled by grammatical trapdoors and puzzles in punctuation, who spells words with diabolical inaccuracy. "Eats, Shites & Leaves" is the antidote to all those pedants out there and celebrates all things shite about the misuse of both written and spoken English, highlighting the prevalence of absent apostrophes, ghastly grammar, suspect sentences, rambling repetitiveness, insane instructions and quirky quotations in society today, including: ambiguous adverts - 'Why not have the kids shot for Easter, or have a family portrait taken?'; dangling modifiers - 'She slipped on the ice and apparently her legs went in separate directions in early December'; and senseless statements - 'With half the race gone, there is half the race still to go'. "Eats, Shites & Leaves" is written by the formidable A. Parody, English-language enthusiast, who celebrates crap English and shows you exactly how to use it.
