I Edit

I edit my wife’s papers and articles. Usually this is pretty boring (sorry sweetie!) but occasionally it’s downright funny. Mostly because of Autocorrect, which occaisionally inserts some odd words. Such as this one:

… the popularity elves of other categories could lead to issues.

And for your amusement, here was my comment on the paper:

I’m certain that the popularity elves will cause problems, but I’m betting we can exterminate these pests

How would you have commented on this sentence? Best response wins my admiration.

    This really depends upon the context of the paper in question. You could go with current events:

    Popularity elves are too elitist and out of touch to be president.

    Or you could go the obvious Tolkien route with something like:

    The unpopularity orcs will certainly cause even more problems and be tougher to deal with than popularity elves.

    Which categories of popularity elves don’t lead to issues? If only some categories cause issues, can we make sure we get elves for the categories that don’t?
