This is outrageous! I find it absolutely manipulative and divisive to bring out such cute, adorable, irresistible (not to mention, cuddly) arguments at this late hour of the debate!!! Are you suggesting that after months of meetings, discussions, emails, phone calls, and a massive, fact-based website that we should be purr-suaded by passé pop-culture references? We are academics not adolescents! We can make intelligent decisions based on measured research not fur-miliar internet memes! As a longtime adjunct and a dog-lover, I am deeply disappointed that you did not allow enough time to explore all of the pawsibilities.
While the thesis of this essay is strong, if my students turned in papers with spelling and grammar like these kittens, they would flunk.
More grammar trouble. Spelling and grammar like these kittens ... Of course, spelling and grammar are not like any kittens. They are the foundation of proper academic communication. These kittens should not even be accepted into upper division courses. What is wrong with their writing instructors? What is wrong with these kittens? You would think that if they wanted to support their teachers, they try to do it properly. My cousin the Church Lady would be appalled.
