I’d be surprised if you haven’t come across a comic from The Oatmeal yet. His stuff is practically created to go viral – popular installments among the editorial crowd include “When to use i.e. in a sentence“, “How to use a semi-colon” and “10 words you need to stop misspelling“. This video shows the creator of The Oatmeal explaining the secrets to his success – 5 million UVs a month, that is. (Depending on your workplace, some of the language/pictures are not necessarily safe for work. But it’s all funny.)
