The Oatmeal: Matthew Inman makes grammar FUN

The mastermind behind The Oatmeal is Matthew Inman. His self-written bio says it all:

“The Oatmeal’s real name is Matthew and he lives in Seattle, Washington. He subsists on a steady diet of crickets and whiskey. He enjoys long walks on the beach, gravity, and breathing heavily through his mouth. His dislikes include scurvy, typhoons, and tapeworm medication.”

Matthew acknowledges the help of a librarian for his “whom” comic:

If you like Matthew’s grammar posters, you can buy The Oatmeal Grammar Pack.
