Will work as food. Know any prepositions used incorrectly?

Asked by Zen_Again (9868 points ) November 27th, 2009

Funny lines from mistaken prepositions: do you know any others (for my ESL class).

Thanks!

This may just be an internet myth, but Churchill is said to have said something along the lines of “Ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put.” Link

My 5th grade teacher would always say, whenever she heard someone ask, “Where’s my pencil at?” “It’s between the A and the T. Never end a sentence that way.”

Seriously, though, my Biggest Pet Peeve in this area is the commercial use of the word “Got” in ad campaigns. I want to ask if they’ve “Got Diploma?”
