    Is that a Z-inger, or what?

    It’s Ing-Rattitude.


    After all the nouns I’ve let it verb.


    Some of them shouldn’t have been verbed at all….

    I would say “ingrate”, but it would merely be laying it on after Susan has shown us the way.

    That’s why a positive precedes a gerund. It stole it.

    It’s headed for the red-light district where it hopes to be prepositioned.

    At any rate, it’s a misproportioned 1957 Chevrolet!

    No need to call them, they always seem to be lurking about.

    Is that car carrying the text, with subtitle I presume, of a “blessyou” for her sneeze?

    Is it possible Dan doesn’t know how to pronounce ‘gerund’? The joke would make more sense if the word were pronounced with a hard G.

    This would be funny if “gerund” were pronouced with a hard G. Since it’s pronounced “jerund”, not so much… :(
