Follow Up: More On The Finer Points Of Graphing, Now With A Lesson On Homonyms…

Apologies that this is all I could come up with today- I’m too busy watching stormporn…er, closely following the news coverage relating to Hurricane Sandy. So far, my favorite anecdote is Chris Christie being much less than amused when asked if Mitt Romney is going to tour the storm damage.

I’ve posted several times before about the importance of graph labeling. A visual reminder:

Now it appears that the topic has been co-opted by the grammar police, since the following was posted on my Facebook wall by reader JD Montgomery:

Oh, homonyms. This must make my English-teacher mom so happy. (It would probably make her less happy to know that I had to look up the difference between homonyms, homophones, homographs, etc…but hey, at least I know that those are things. I figure as long as I know enough to know what to google for, I’m set for life.) This also makes me wonder whether labeling one’s axes would make them more or less likely to get dumped.

    Of course, if you are worried about the grammar police, you might want to do something about “more of less likely to get dumped”.
