Hahahaha!! Grammar Cat really is a discerning fellow. ;D

You need a publishing contract! This is brilliant!
My cousin's memoir of love and loneliness while raising a child with multiple disabilities will be out on Amazon soon! Know the Night, by Maria Mutch, has been called "full of hope, light, and companionship for surviving the small hours of the night."

I really wish there had been grammar cat when I was a kid.  It really makes the concepts sink in.  I think it would make a fantastic children's book.  Great work!

Comprise vs. compose?

These are great!

*whispering*  With regard to the vicodin-affected affect vs. effect, four out of five are correct. But the first affect s/b effect,i.e.: "Where would the vase have the best effect on the room?"

Please keep these coming; I love them!

POD!

(I do agree with Loveswater, but what is vicodin? Don't have it in the UK)

As for Lie/Lay, I always remember that from a tutor who said "Hens lay, people lie"

How about aloud and allowed/i've known people who get confused between the spellings of these words.

I'd love to see a grammar cat comic about the difference between "which" and "that" - I'm trying to teach myself to use the right one at the right time, but I still get mixed up and now I get hung up over it :P

ETA: Ooh, and passive voice versus active voice!  Passive voice isn't always wrong, it's just used incorrectly so often . . .  ;D

Thanks!  ;D I'll fix that when I get a chance.

scotcat - vicodin is a painkiller. I had surgery and then I attempted Grammar Cat comics lol. I was actually doing a which and that one when I looked at it and went, "Whoa... what is THAT? I better stop"

I am thinking of doing a bunch of them and then having them print and bound for my little neice Eowyn when she gets older.

So the effect of the vicodin was to affect your ability to write Grammar Cat?

I hope all is going well for your recovery, and that you no longer need the need the vicodin

I/Me could be another thing for the Grammar Cat to sort out. I fear I get this wrong sometimes.
