Alot by chrispygraphics Alot by chrispygraphics
For those of you who haven’t yet discovered the awesome madness that is Hyperbole and a Half, you have no idea what you are missing. Hyperbole and a Half is a blog by Allie Brosh. Sure she’s not a household name and she didn’t write Twilight or Harry Potter, but her musings are good for several hours of entertainment.

My sister sent me this link several weeks ago when I was unable to view it on a proper computer. I made a valiant effort to view the site on my iPhone, but the sheer volume of images caused my phone to have a minor seizure and stop working. Luckily, I was able to check it out with proper equipment and was grateful for my sister’s recommendation. This blog is awesome.

As for that critter you see at the top of the post, I’m sure that any wayward internet traveler is wondering what the hell that illustration has to do with Hyperbole and a Half. As I was reading through the posts I came across one called “The Alot Is Better Than You At Everything”. It basically consists of her annoyances with grammar, but the part about the Alot made me laugh so hard that I felt I had to pay homage to a similar grammatical annoyance that I share with her. I’m no English major or grammar Nazi and I probably can’t fathom all of the mistakes I’ve made in this post alone, but I do know that “a lot” is two words and that there, their, and they’re all have unique meanings/spellings.

Thank you, Allie, for giving me the tools I need to smile when I read something like “alot of watermelons fell over”, or “the pizza guy brought alot of pizza to the party.” High five.

Great version! As an illustrated character the fur makes this Alot stand out from most depictions, its presence has that great bear like stature and its sports a spot-on set of those cock-eyed stick on eyeballs that makes the character a great fun (and educational) visual meme.
