H.P. Lovecraft is awesome. Gave us Cthulhu and is considered by many in the literature arts to be better than Edgar Alan Poe.

37- it's not even the grammar fail that sucked about 14s comment, just how hard he tried to make fun of the first comment...he failed miserably

14- It's shit, horrifyingly so. Are you saying "it's horrifying bad" is right and "it's horrifyingly bad" is wrong as well? Read #66's comment and apply it to own.

#39 & #65, thank you! I can't agree more. #70, there's a reason they teach Language Arts in school.

Hans Anderson is truly horrifying. And the worst part is he writes like murdering your own grandmother to sell her corpse is as humdrum as doing laundry.

68 - Perhaps you should reread my comment. Nowhere in it did I say anything that would imply "it's horrifying bad" would be correct, nor did I say "it's horrifyingly bad" would be incorrect. Bad is an adjective, and may be modified by an adverb. Shit however, is a noun, and may NOT be modified by an adverb. Think before you type.

Why the hell does so many first few comments get so many thumps down?! What is the problem? "Horrifying" too bad for a comment? Should it have some joke making fun of OP or something saying "at least..." like on every fucking single other FML? You people are fucking weird.

#111- "Shit" is listed as an adjective as well in most reputable dictionaries, so you're wrong. Do you want to know how I know that? Because I looked it up. Maybe you should do the same before trying to correct people.

I did. I happen to own a dictionary as well, and in it, shit is listed as a noun, and a verb. Not as an adjective. However, there is an adjective derivation listed, "shitty".

#130-- I don't think I've ever actually heard it used as an adjective... :/ Are you sure that's not nonstandard English? I looked it up too, and all the dictionaries (including Websters) I used didn't list it as an adjective (isn't "shitty" the adjectival form of "shit"?) Which dictionaries did you use?

Good lord just let it go already. You're not going to win, ever, because no matter how wrong you are you're not going to admit it, especially on the internet.

But I just joined in, and now I'm seriously curious! So far, what I've found is that the use of "shit" as an adjective is nonstandard British slang, and that while it's always listed as a noun and a verb, it's not always listed as an adjective. I have yet to check the OED, but the only dictionary I found that listed it as an adjective was the Wiktionary...

67 - because of the people who go around thumbing down peoples comments. Or as i like to call them, FML communists.

People are so weird these days. Posting random stuff on the Internet. So if you try to look things up you can't tell the facts from the fiction.

That's why there's this thing people invented. They gave it a very unusual name: "library"

7- Yes, that gets annoying when people do that. 34- I laughed so loudly in the bathroom that I got weird looks when I came out.
