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.
So 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.
