Yeah, pretty old. There's at least fifty different versions, many attributed to different schools.

Still funny, though. It's especially ironic that I have an easier time reading that than I do reading Peatydag's posts :D

Did I mention that I love the new Edit function? I often catch something I want to edit after I've made a post, and this is awesome :thumb:

Grammar police would be less interested than the Spelling Nazis. As an amateur socio-linguist, I'm a member of both organizations, so I find it fascinating.

I don't really understand the new edit function. What is everyone talking about?
