This video from College Humor really puts the Nazi in Grammar Nazi.

“Did you really think I was so stupid I wouldn’t recognize a run-on sentence?”

(Warning: Er, graphic violence at the end.)

  1. So here’s the thing! I don’t think that was a run-on sentence. Sure, it has multiple independent clauses, but each of them were linked to the others with conjunctions (“but”, “so”, etc.) and this should make the sentence grammatical (even if it is a little wordy). Right? Still, overall it was a very funny video. 😀
