Who knew we could learn so much from the cast of “Jersey Shore”?

In case you were wondering why grammar is important, John of Vlogbrothers has the compelling answer: “Because without it, we can’t tell if Snooki is polyamorously inclined or has a secret third hand.”

And in case you were wondering whether “The Situation” is a noun, verb, or adjective, he has the answer (h/t to Grammar Girl).



  1. Sure, it’s an awkward sentence… but is one awkward sentence really compelling evidence that “she doesn’t care about the quality of discourse in our society”?
