My Wife Sent me this brilliant idea via e-mail upon reading my previous post on the word "Media".
"They should make a Bud Light 'Real Men of Genius' commercial about the Grammar Nazi."
I felt the idea deserved a post of its own. I've made some small changes, and edited for style, but this is mostly her (surprisingly creative) work.
Today we salute YOU, Mr. Grammar correction Nazi.
Mr. Grammar Correction Na-a-ZI!
You can't listen to your friends, the radio, or even your own aunt, the English teacher, without making comments like, "Actually, it's 'intents AND purposes' not 'intensIVE purposes'"
"You KNOW what I me-ant!"
"The average person wouldn't know how to pluralize medium, but you, O defender of the English language, you know it's 'media', and not 'mediums'"
"You gotta' know your Latin"
"So keep on catching those dangling participles, O sentry of the semicolon; because when it comes to punctuation, you're the best. Period.
"Mister Grammar Correction Na-a-zi"
