How about if they keep slapping you until you complete a circle?
One of these days, Lemont…

Pedantry often provokes people’s reactions.
As opposed to tied down?
In a nation of more guns than people, and notoriously poor impulse control, being pedantic can get you killed in the right circumstances.
Still the best in sticking his nose into other people’s conversations!
Does no one wonder why someone might be tied up and need the police? No one?
Sideways is sort of the direction one goes after being slapped, Lemont.
Hit him with a shot of pepper spray, that’ll teach him to mind his own business.
Lots of prepositions get bizarre usage. When you chow down, you eat it up.
And then there’s “fit to be tied,”
He’s right. TIED DOWN it is!!
(Actually, only the knots are the only parts tied.)

Ugh. I know I can be pedantic but Lemont is taking this too far.
When you are “All Tied Up”, you have to dial 911 using your Nose.
How come people are always “All Tied Up”?
I’ve never heard anyone described as “Partially Tied Up”.
Wisconsin comedian Charlie Berens comments on people who correct your grammar:
You know, considering how these two are, I’m surprised Lemont is still alive.
