How about parenthetical images?
Look closely at the bottle in this smirnoff ad. See it? ( I cry WOLF!)
I have been told ( over the years ) that one should not put parenthetical statements in one’swritings. ( It just isn’t acceptable.)
I have been aware of this rule and I have tried ( really, reeeeaally tried) to obey it.
Now this rule is not volunteer.
It is commanding ( and unforgiving)!
Thou Shalt not engrave thy marks in this symbol » («
nor this symbol »)«
For I am an jealous Grammaticist and will visit this sin (THE SIN ) upon your test papers!
There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth! ( plus you will be held after class to clean chalk boards…THE CHALK BOARDS!)
I took a writing class once, ( English 101 )
and had problems with my ” parenthetical statements” ( not anymore-I over came it.)
The teacher resorted to writing on my papers in red pencil, ( red being the parenthetical color for corrective issues), STOP WRITING PARENTHETICAL STATEMENTS! ( AND SEE ME AFTER CLASS!!!)
So now, that you may understand the rule on Parenthetical statements ( which I doubt) you can go back to the Smirnoff ad and see their parenthetical entry. ( or their open confession- which means THE CHALK BOARDS!!!)</strong
