"Do not be surprised when those who ignore the rules of grammar also ignore the law. After all, the law is just so much grammar."
Robert Brault

You need a professional to decipher all the fine print. 133 seconds.

That's why you should trust the folks at POEM, the Professional Organization of English Majors.

Injured? Victim of medical negligence? Call me! I understand sequence of tenses and I'll beat any lawyer's price!

Hmm. Funny. Does he really believe that?

Yes grammatical mistakes are a gateway offence.

Of all the stupid Robert Brault quotes, this must be the most stupid. Either that, or I'll find myself in prison, for reckless but not willful misplacement of commas and semicolons.

i"ll bake you a cake with White Out inside!

I would not send you to prison for your indiscriminate use of commas, abra, but I might sentence you to some compulsory training sessions with LLapp.

abra on 2016-08-11 09:36:23
momn8r, thank you. More and more I realize I'm going to need that cake, oh and the White Out too.

If he was serious, this says terrible things about the workings of his mind. I've never even had a traffic ticket. I've never broken a law, willfully or otherwise. Grammar, now that's an entirely different thing.

Once you start splitting infinitives, it is a slippery slope.

abra, chocolate or vanilla?
