    Five points towards the house cup for anyone who rewrites Lewis Carrol’s poem for the Grammar Nazi. 🙂

    It starts, “‘Twas brilling, and the slithy toves did gyre and gimble in the wabe”

    See, but that’s fiction, and poetry, and made up words can be used however the maker-upper sees fit. Unlike real words and sentences, which have rules. It is a frabjous day, indeed, when someone properly invokes the Oxford comma…

    Nice build, tho… yours?

    So the entire thread was to poke fun at me. Well played.

    Don’t think of it as an entire thread, think of it as an entire post … and know that it would be done in the same spirit of helpfulness that permeates the practice of correcting grammar, spelling and typographical errors.

    Right on. I correct because I care. For the betterment of all humanity.

    But seriously, over here my proofreading services proved to be much needed…

    pointing out my need for help/assistance/correction should be obviously redundant after 5 years.

    Didn’t mean it as pointing fingers at you (or anyone), just defending myself that sometimes, my being a stickler is for the best…

    Also – I’m proud that you caught your own typos after sleeping on it and proofreading!

    Well, yeah.

    But in this context, on this thread, I thought it was obvious. Especially since I already linked the source material, see?

    [quote quote=22834]It is a frabjous day, indeed
