VERY IMPORTANT ARTICLE: Are you too drunk right now to write/edit?
I’ve developed a handy quiz for you.
Where are you right now?
a) Upright at a desk
b) Horizontal on my bed with my laptop on my stomach
c) Still at the bar, trying to get the CMS to load on my phone
d) In a ditch somewhere?
How many drinks have you had?
d) Lost count
Which AP Style dilemma are you having?
a) You’re typing “Web site” instead of “website” out of habit
b) You can’t recall if it’s “10” or “ten.” Too lazy to look it up. Maybe it’s best to just edit all the numbers out of this piece?
c) Wondering whether AP prefers “whiskey” or “whisky”
d) Style guides are soooo annoying. Y cant u just publish txt msgs 2 the CMS? Then you wouldn’t have to sit upright at this computer. Or rather, computers. There seem to be two. You don’t remember getting a second monitor…
