Correct grammar can change the entire meaning of a sentence. A popular example is the way a comma changes ‘let’s eat Grandma!’ to ‘let’s eat, Grandma!’ – the latter being a much less violent proposal.

The same can be said for spelling. One misspelled word can take a sentence in a whole new direction, and not always a pleasant one. Because kids are the most frequent mis-spellers of words, it’s often their lovely, innocent scribbles that are cursed with accidentally inappropriate sentiments, making for much hilarity and internet gold.

Here are a few more unfortunately mis-spelled notes from kids. Get ready for a chuckle …
