The final, brilliant word on passive voice.
“She was killed [by zombies.]” <—- passive
“Zombies killed [by zombies] her.” <—- active

Welp.

Oh my god, best passive voice identification tool ever.

This is on par with the moment that I learned “the alligator always eats the bigger number” when determining whether to use greater than or less than sign. 
Life changing shit, seriously.

Journalism class mini-lesson alert.

This is a prime example of something I love about the internet. This is funny, appeals to the public consciousnesses, and is useful. I would definitely suggest this tool to someone if they had trouble differentiating active and passive voice.
