It's National Grammar Day!


March 4th is
National Grammar Day,
and so it bears mentioning that even if, in the end, the statement
"Ain't no way no flying pig's gonna hit this spot twice,"
achieves through its triple negative
an outcome no less negative than intended,
such a syntactic transgression rarely goes
uncontradicted or
unpunished.

Ahem,

Thank you all for your kind regards, linguistic gymnastics, and two cents. Gratitude doth stream from the deepest cockles of my heart.

Hey Adam,
congrats on the great work. Been here before and always enjoyed it very much.

Piggies on the wing indeed. They glide so nice. Don't land quite so nice.

The wayward apostrophe in "pig's" brings it all home. Martha Brockenbrough would be proud.
