Chris Baker and Jacob Hansen are big fans of grammar. Naturally, they were annoyed with poorly phrased Facebook updates, company emails, and text messages, and together, they decided to craft a solution with a much-needed dose of humor. 

Enter the duo's new book, The Elements of F*cking Style

"The truth about English is that it can get pretty boring," they write. "Dangling modifiers, gerunds, punctuation marks--it's enough to make you want to drop out of high school. Swearing and sex on the other hand, well, these time-honored pastimes warm the cockles of our hearts. Now, The Elements of F*cking Style drags English grammar out of the ivory tower and into the gutter, injecting a dull subject with a much-needed dose of color."

Other helpful chapters include: All I've got in this world are my sentences and my balls,and I don't break 'em for nobody, Pronouns are a real bitch, A colon is more than an organ that gets cancer, and The positive form beats the shit out of wishy-washy writing
