One of the most common causes of a silly sentence is known as the misplaced modifier. It happens when you have 2 points to make in the same sentence, & you don’t make it clear who is doing what.
My English teacher always used this example, which she found hugely amusing:
Wearing my pink frilly party dress, the big red bus came over the hill.
That makes it sound as though the bus was wearing the dress. It would be better to write:
I was wearing my pink frilly party dress when the big red bus came over the hill.
Here is a reminder about how this relates to adverbs.
