FumbleRules icons!  
Humorous English-nerd icons and a random Dalek.

You're free to take them, of course, but it would be nice if I was credited. Please do not hotlink the icons; I do not have unlimited bandwith on my photobucket account.

Don't use no double negatives. Hyperbole is the worst ever! Take the bull by the hand and avoid mixed metaphors!
1 2 3
Avoid the overuse of inverted commas. Avoid the overuse of quotation marks. No sentence fragments.
4 5 6
Avoid the overuse of exclamation marks!!!!! It is incumbent on us to avoid archaisms. Eschew dialect, irregardless.
7 8 9
Do not put statements in the negative form. Psychedalek! This Dalek is surrounded by sixties-style colourful flowers. Always pick on the correct idiom.
10 11 12
Subjects and verbs always has to agree. Avoid commas, that are not necessary. Don't use contractions in formal writing.
13 14 15
Last but not least, avoid cliches. Don't abbrev.

The patterns for the icons are mostly from lj-heartdivide, except for the ones on the archaisms, contractions, dialect, idioms and exclamation marks icons. The archaisms icon uses a photograph of a Chaucer manuscript. The contractions one uses one of Smuffster@DeviantArt's patterns. The dialect, idiom and exclamation mark icons use patterns from smashingmagazine.com.

I know this is an old entry--but these icons are hilarious! There was no way I can't not resist saving them all! ;)
