How Not to Write

I don’t remember whether this travesty was self-published or someone actually paid for the privilege of putting it into print. A book like this makes you suspect the printing press wasn’t such a good idea, after all.

Just for the record, I don’t believe teenagers are idiots and I don’t write down to them.
