love the word “peeververein.” Sadly, I belong to that organization but I’m currently checking my evil ways.

Is there really such a thing as “National Grammar Day”?

Yes. It’s rather silly. National Talk Like a Pirate Day is more fun.

What happens on National Grammar Day? Is some body (the “Save the Grammar Fund”? The “I Love My Grammar” League? The Brotherhood of the Enclitic E?) behind it?

One notable thing that happens on National Grammar Day is John McIntyre’s annual venture into the genre of grammar noir:

Episode 1: See a Fellow About a Scam

Episode 2: The Capo

Episode 3: Cocktails with Colleen

Episode 4 to come Monday, March 4

“Pour me one. Make it a double. I don’t measure out my life with coffee spoons, babe.”

Great stuff!
