    I am not so sure I would want to be criticizing someone holding a sharp, pointed object and a heavy, blunt object. His response could be quite pointed or leave you with a splitting head(ache).

    Is this what they call “diagramming” a sentence?

    someone said once, that barbarians are much more polite than civilized folk. Reason being, you tend to watch your words when the consequence could be a split skull.

    “Can you tell me where the library is at?”“Here at Harvard we do not end sentences with a preposition.”“OK, then. Can you tell me where the library is at, jerkface?”

    It isn’t just Harvard, bubbie. It is true in any place where they value use of business English over any other form of English. The grammar you use can advance you or hold you back. Is that fair? Probably not. Is it true? Absolutely. So keep talking like that and see how far it gets you.

    Now Wiley needs to write the $25 royalty check to John Cleese. That joke’s straight out of Monty Python’s “Life of Brian” (still funny, of course)

    Barbarians are a lot like Texans, they are polite for much the same reasons.

    I thought of Life of Brian too—and was glad (for the carver’s sake) that the Grammar cop was not as harsh as Brian’s Centurion.

    The end of a sentence is not a good place to put a preposition at.

    The symbol he shows is a quail chick, which represents the sound “w”. At the end of a noun it forms a plural, which in Egyptian Hieroglyphics means 3 or more. For example, the word “Haburu” became the modern word “Hebrew”. There is no reason why a sentence cannot end with a plural noun.

    @treered- “The Romans have left the building”, perhaps?@ Dogsniff- Makes about as much sense as Congress. I enjoyed the comment. Just hang in and turn the other cheek. Keep commenting!

    Maybe they were before No Child Left Behind and they are upset because they were left behind repeatedly.
