Dangling Participles II

Happy July 4th! Here are more of a grammatical faux pas: Dangling Participles.

·       Sleeping in mine orchard, a serpent stung me.
·       Running after the school bus, the backpack bounced from side to side.
·       Petting his head, my dog enjoyed my company.
·       Waiting for the Moon pie, the candy machine began to hum loudly.
·       Broken into pieces, I swept up the glass.
·       Coming out of the market, the bananas fell on the pavement.
·       I smelled the oysters coming down the stairs for dinner.
