I'm working on copyedits (copy-edits? copy edits?) for my next highly intellectual and extremely classy book: The Small Adventure of Popeye and Elvis.
Who knew toe-jam is a hyphenated word?
Who knew swearwords is one word?
Who knew that if you call someone a skinny-headed ding-dong, you have to hyphenate ding-dong?
Who knew that when you say, "Oh, for criminy's sake" - criminy is not spelled with an "e."
Who knew tar paper is two words - or
Headlocks is one word - or
Chicken-wire is hyphenated.
I told you this book is highly intellectual and extremely classy.
