Happy National Grammar Day, everyone!

I hope everyone will join me in celebrating National Grammar Day by giving your nearest English teacher a big kiss.

What’s that you say? Wildly inappropriate unless you happen, like MRP, to be married to said English teacher? Oh yes, point taken.

Well instead, enjoy this little tidbit from Gopher, who is just on fire with the submissions this week.

Overseen on a sign in a park in Austin, Texas. Just imagine what a difference an itty bitty period or two could make in this sentence, rendering it either No trespassing during this time period. or No trespassing during this time. Period.

In any case, evidently, trespassing is allowed during the other twelve hours of the day.

********

Bonus MRP moment: If you have a sense of humor about National Grammar Day (or what the heck, even if you don’t), read McIntyre’s post over at You Don’t Say.
