School is long since over, but a failed English exam keeps haunting you. But unlike most of us, some were born into this world with a rare love for commas, apostrophes, and missing letters. In fact, they don’t type⁠—they write with fountain pens.

This tiny portion of humankind is known as the grammar junkies. And surprisingly, their sense of humor is so good, it’s addictive. After you see these language puns or spelling errors, you can't unsee them. Sooner than you know it, you'll join the gang laughing at homophones like it was Comedy Cellar. Scroll down through some of the best jokes down below and make your teacher proud.

Bored Panda contacted Judy Yorke, the writing trainer at The Sentence Works, to find out more about what it's like being a grammar nerd. It turns out, there are some behavioral signs that reveal that you are one! “If you always check your texts to friends carefully before sending them in case there any errors,” it’s likely you’re a grammar junkie. “You’ll also know this is the case if your friends apologize to you for mistakes in WhatsApp messages—or if you wince at the missing apostrophe in the word WhatsApp!”

But language is never still, as it evolves with time, and grammar changes too. Judy explained: “For instance, many of us were told at school not to split infinitives and not to start a sentence with 'and' or 'but,'” she said. But “these are both rules I cheerfully break,” added the grammar pro.

At the same time, it’s fair to say that good grammar and punctuation make a piece of writing easier for the reader to understand and this is as true today as it ever was. “People care about mistakes because they are aware that errors can make them look unprofessional or sloppy,” said Judy. That’s especially true when writing an important formal letter or sending a resume to potential employers. Carelessness is never a welcome trait in the job market!
