Are you a grammar fussbudget? Check out “How Picky Are You When It Comes To Grammar?” by Martha Brockenbrough of the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar to find out.

Don’t get us wrong. We are fussbudgets ourselves. Like old-fashioned ladies who cover every vulnerable surface with protective doilies, we’ve been known to write stern letters over such things as confusingly punctuated signs in airport shuttles.

Our enthusiasm for fussbudgetry aside, your FBQ, or fussbudget quotient, is probably inversely proportional to your ability to move about this wide and wonderful world without experiencing chest pains.

Hat tip to Kasey.
