  1. I may be biased because Wayne’s World is one if my favorite films, but marry that woman.

    Yes, I know it’s punishment for shoplifting in some countries.

  2. You guys totally look like the ghetto Wayne and Garth that they used in Wayne’s World 2 when they went to England. “What a shitty circus.” So awesome. Favorite movie of all time!

  3. I know these are low stakes and all, but I see this all the time and I have to finally say something:

    I think the title should be ‘The girlfriend and me, first attempt at a cosplay together’.

    The way I read it, the implicit title of this post is ‘[This is a picture of] the girlfriend and I, [it is our] first attempt at a cosplay together’. This is obviously bad grammar because in this sentence ‘I’ serves as an object whereas it should only serve as a subject. ‘Me’ would be the correct word. I think ‘[This is a picture of] the girlfriend and me, first attempt at a cosplay together’ is correct. Therefore, the title should be ‘The girlfriend and me, first attempt at a cosplay together’.

    Like I said, I see this all the time. I often see posts with titles of the form ‘______ and I, etc.’. Every time, to my ear (eye?), it feels off. Nobody would say ‘This is a picture of I. Isn’t it lovely?’, nor would somebody title a post ‘I, isn’t it lovely?’. ‘Me, isn’t it lovely?’ seems more natural, if still a bit strange.

    Please forgive my hairsplitting. I can’t claim to be infallible in this. I just need to get it off my chest.

    It occurs to me that my interpretation of the implicit title may be off, but I’m already committed to leaving this comment. If this is the case then I’d like to know what the most correct interpretation of the title is. I’d also like to know the grammatical justification for the use of ‘I’ in this case (and similar cases) rather than ‘me’. Maybe if someone corrects my view then I’ll stop feeling this irritation.

    So there it is. Please send help.
