Comic Contest #31 I'll take sodomy for 200$ by Fracture
5-23-01
Welcome back to Quiz Show. The show where you ask the contestants questions and they try their best to not look like complete assess.
Here is a question from Samantha in Jacksonville, Kentucky. Are you ready John?
Umm, sure I guess.
She wants to know if you’re single?
Oh boy I was so hoping this show would be my fast track to getting lucky!
She goes on to say that she certainly hopes so because the idea of you procreating is rather revolting.
Hey Alex that wasn't in the form of a question.

Ok I messed up the 1st time. It met all the rules but I didn't use a prop. Granted there is no Donkey sodomy in t his one but I did use every letter int he alphabet at least once in there without resorting to using any oddball words, that should count for something :P

Actually, it depends... (Please for give the paraphrasing - it's for brevity and simplicity.)

"My boyfriend is sick of me correcting him."
In this sentence, you could argue that the phrase "me correcting him" is a noun, as in, "Here is a photo of me correcting him." "Correcting" in this context is not a gerund (a verb made into a noun by adding -ing, for those who don't know) but a participle verb.

"My boyfriend is sick of my correcting him."
On the other hand, the "my" is an adjective describing "correcting". Since, as you pointed out, "correcting" in this context is a gerund, "correcting him" is ungrammatical, since they are both nouns (well, a noun and a pronoun).

By my linguistic reckoning, if you want to put the "my" in there, the sentence should be this:

"My boyfriend is sick of my correction of him."

...or, in the phraseology of the original quote:

"My boyfriend is very, very sick of my correction of his grammar."

...blah blah blah blah & so on by DexX.

By saying "my boyfriend is sick of me correcting him," she's saying that her boyfriend is sick of HER, and (on an unrelated or loosely related note) she's correcting him. Whether you want the -ing form of "correct" to be a gerund or a participle, she's still guilty at least of a dangling modifier. Hang her!

So does this make me your boyfriend? 8)

Actually, I kind of regret this whole string. I gave up being an active grammar pedant a long time ago because people (including myself) hate people like that. I just enjoyed the ironic fun of correcting that particular sentence. 8)

And, on an unrelated note, I haven't entered this contest yet because I'm illiterate and don't know the entire alphabet.

This is the weirdest ****ing sidetrack since that whole volatile dictionary debate. I blame DexX for both. No, check that. I blame gabe. No real reason other than precedent.

For all you grammar freaks out there, tell me what this sentence doesn't not not say:

I don't not object to your reverse argument of the fact that no one can not truly not know those that did not not raise them.

While it's true that most people hate grammar pedants, I tend not to mind so much. Intelligence is sexy. Once intelligence is established, however, frequent correction is just ****ing annoying.

I'll tell you what it means. You're a ****. I think you and wirthling are the same person, since I've grown to loathe you both equally. Since there isn't that much hate in the world for two separate entities, you ergo are one.

I rest my case.

Now I know it'll be easier to blow you up since you're in the same spot.

It wasn't funny! I'm not a *******! And why would you want to drink ME under the table? I don't taste very nice.

Ouch. That hurts. Anyway, yes. I agree entirely. Now what was the question?

Grammar pedants don't show any sign of intelligence... they just show signs of being able to memorize a bunch of rules and apply them to sentence patterns they encounter. Oh, and they also show signs of being left alone at parties.

Well, the two nots in paragraph two cancel out (they were tied into a slipnot), so what we have left is a request to report what paragraph three doesn't say.

To enumerate that fully, of course, is left as an exercise for the interested reader.

Well, since I was asking for what it didn't say, you could write just about anything and be right. For instance it didn't say gabe wets himself when thinking about the cookie monster. Likewise, it didn't say gabe plays with himself when watching Starsky and Hutch. But both answers are acceptable. Not societally acceptable, granted, but acceptable nonetheless.

Sorry, I still disagree...

What we have here is a sentence in the form "My boyfriend is sick of ." I argue that the phrase "me correcting him" behaves as a noun in this context, in the same way as the noun in this: "Gabe Billings is aroused by ." can be filled by a phrase such as "wirthling sodomising pack-animals". By your argument, that sentence would mean that Gabe is simply aroused by wirthling, and we all know that is just not the case.
