Grammatical vigilante

If you’ve got nothing else to do on a quiet Friday at the end of a holiday week, take the Grammar Snob test.

This was MRP’s score:

69 snob points (out of 100)
You have a mighty respect for the English language, and its tortuous misuse by the uneducated burns your soul. You can barely restrain yourself from grammatical vigilantism. You often find your friends pre-emptively apologizing for their language goofs, fearing your wrath, or at least merciless teasing.

See? It burns my soul. This only begins to sum up what it’s like to be MRP.

How did you do?

Hat tip to Helen’s Dad for passing on this quiz.
