One person writes a sentence with a grammar or spelling mistake, the next person corrects it and writes another sentence with a mistake.

I love shopping in Bingo because there prices can’t be beat.

I think it’s throw down a diaper for the baby. Why me?

Is it please talk louder? Or speak up?

Me is the indirect object. You're requesting someone throw it down to you.

I don’t like the sound of it but it might be grammatically correct. If me must be in the sentence I’d prefer
Throw down a diaper for the baby for me please.

But it’s only fun if we can be all pretentious about it. If you’re doing it on purpose it takes that all away.

But then "for me" is a misplaced modifier because the baby isn't for me; the throwing is for you.

"Throw down to me a diaper for the baby" is grammatically correct, but it's just as awkward.

So who needs the me?
Please throw down a diaper for the baby. It’s obviously a favor for me.

No. There's a specific grammar error there, not just awkward wording. However, the sentence is considered correct in informal usage, so you may have difficulty spotting the error.

Yes I’m a licensed reverse psychologist! Or maybe it’s more grammatically correct to say I’m reverse licensed?

Loud is an adjective and loudly is the adverb (though informally loud can also be used as an adverb), so the correct sentence would be "Please speak more loudly."

LOSE LOSE LOSE.
I almost lose it when people use loose so loosely instead of lose. Oh and too much.
