alright heres an assignment I'm doing in class right now and I thought I'd throw it up here and see if you guys can come out with anything for it.

Its based on a poem called "The Museum of Stones" and its a descriptive piece about stones, but what you have to do is rename the museum of something and write about that. Hopefully its something you know so you can use fancy technical good sounding words that noone else knows about

heres a link to the museum of stones poem

“The Museum of Dogs”

In the front entrance there are puppies
to make it easy on you when you first come in.
You play games and forgive them for their clumsiness,
their paws are bigger than their heads.
It's time to move on when you realize
that they don't care about you
and only want to play with the other puppies
or sleep in the corner of the room.

The insides of a dog are warm, and framed
on the wall is a selection from London's
To Build a Fire, the part where he wants
to kill the dog and use his insides
to warm his hands from the frostbite.
There are bones of dogs suspended
by a hard plastic like The Bodies Museum
in New York. One dog even has his own
leg bone in his own mouth and is going
to bury himself and rebury himself again.

In the Pitbull room we learn that Pitbulls
don't want to fight. That locked jaws
are something that all dogs have
and that because they are pack dogs
they are affectionate and have a type of love
thats similar to brothers. If they didn't care
so much perhaps they wouldn't be so protective
and aggressive and used for fighting.

If you're still 'in class', may I suggest that you start by writing 'All right', and not 'alright'. 'Alright' does not exist in English!

Walking Americanisms perhaps?

but don't you still get what I'm saying. Like right now when I call you a fucking tool bag. That doesn't neccissarily fit the Oxford English Dictionary Definition of what a tool bag is but you are indeed one without a doubt and the whole point of any of this is just being able to communicate it well and everyone understood alright without having any miscommunication about it, just as they understand what a tool bag you are without thinking that you are an actual bag of tools sitting at a computer. But I'm sure your really cool to hang out with and everyone loves to be corrected by you all the time.

Didn't you mean "you're" and not "your"? It makes me feel better about my drooping gut and receding hairline to point out the short-comings and mistakes of others. I grew a beard so that my wife didn't suspect me of being homosexual... NOT THAT THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT!

Oh my gosh children! Stop throwing stones! Cro Magnon man go check out urbandictionary.com, as much as you may relish in the glory of correcting others grammer or spelling, you are indeed behind the times my friend, prehistoric shall we say....anything and everything is a word anymore. And little sub cultures have the tendancy to create their own linguistic twists that make that group unique. Not to mention that this blog is for writers and there's a little something called artistic lincence to answer to. To top it off, the Publisher is and English teacher, I believe the kind that cares more about quality of content then the actual gramical law of it all. I do like the "walking americanisms" bit...I wonder what Waites would think of this all...

But golly Publisher did you sure wake up on the wrong side of the bed or what!? I'd almost say that you've acted somewhat douche baggishly in your responce to sir homo sapiens sapiens. Nice imagery though! Had a good chuckle picturing a bag of tools typing at a computer...

Wertzenflogger, no need to add more fule to the fire. All this name calling! Haven't y'all learned the "names will never hurt me" half of that little ditty you'd say as a kid? Words can be misspelled, misplaced, mistaken, thrown around recklessly, warm hearts, lift spirits, inspire, or stab like daggers. Use them effectively, there are concequences. Cause I'm rubber and you're glue, something to that affect.

In my opinion, the most frustrating part of this thread that seemed to have been overlooked is miss baby24 and her advertisement. Her blog is full of "Broken English" if you really want to quarl! I also can't believe you boys seem more interested in fighting over spelling then checking out baby24's profile. Fer cryin out loud her panties are showing!

Love your work kids!
Thanks for keeping me amused!

All right, I'm switching sides:

* Publisher is an English teacher

* would think of allthis (adjective before the pronoun)

* fule should be fuel

* quarl should be quarrel

Gosh, I really didn't intend to sound nasty. I apologise. CM.

It's alright we've all been a little on edge. When he said 6 more weeks we didn't know they would come so hard and so soon
