I guess microsoft paint doesn't have spell-check

Question re: KPS, what is with the typos? Surely if you were going to go to the effort of designing and submitting a secret, you'd make sure that it actually made sense before doing so.

  • Agreed! And forget spell check, how about coherent sentences?

    Im afraid to google it and find out. I learned my lesson when I was curious what a placenta looked like.
  • Never google world's biggest zit either... my brother thought it was funny to email me a link of the results of the query.

  • I'm guessing in this context the poster means that she gave him a chance to sleep with other people, like a free pass? I think a Mulligan is another chance? Something like that.

    <div>I *believe* this is a golf term where a player gets to redo a shot, or rather, ignore a mistake made...I am not sure I am sure what the poster is meaning to imply by her use of the term...open relationship? </div>

    Right, but how does that work in terms of a relationship? Like, "oops I slipped up and cheated and get a redo?" How do you redo cheating? Or is it that the relationship you are in gets a fresh start, regardless of said cheating?

    I presume she's not talking literally about golf, so I am guessing she said he could sleep with other people if he wanted.

     

    For the one before that, where the poster says she wishes her FMIL, 'would came to the wedding!', wth is she trying to say? That she wishes her fmil wouldn't come, or that she wants her to come but she won't because they don't get along? So confused.

    Probably.  I didn't really get that one when I read it.

    I was confused with this one too---but I just thought the text was too small for me to make out what it <em>actually</em> said...because no matter what word I thought it was, it didn't make sense.

  • I absolutely do NOT get the facebook games/video games one...there is a 'but' in the middle of the sentence but the two parts are not contradictory or even really opposed to one another and so I can't figure out why there is a 'but' in the middle...
  • Speaking of that Rach, I am very anti small text in these things... speak up people!
  • I'm quite certain it reads, 'FMIL and I can't get along! 

    I wish she would came to the wedding!'

  • Since she's withholding grandkids, I assume she doesn't want her there...but I also reread that one a bunch of times to understand it!  I also had to read the FB/video game one no fewer than 10 times to understand it--that one might have been my own reading comprehension issue though :)

    I'm glad you said this :).  I guess she's saying that people are hypocrites who play FB games, but call gamers losers.

    Maybe she wants her to come to the wedding, but the FMIL wont because shes a biotch, so thats why shes withholding kids??

    I had to read that one a couple times, and I think they are saying that it's hypocritcal for people who play Farmville/FB games to insult people who play games like WoW.

    Arb, have there been any secrets slamming other knotties specifically? I know you said theyre against the rules but I was curious if anyone has actually submitted any?
  • Arb, can we see the KPS that didn't make it from today? I'm sure you have more ambiguous/incomprehensible ones than those we're discussing!  
  • Nebb - there was an ugly baby one that I'm pretty sure was aimed at me.  Arbs removed it though.
    Holy Crap. We survived the first year!
