    As someone with a slight disability regarding words, I love this and how true it is…..Thanks for the laugh, which I need today. Completely encased in fog by the sea-weird visibility of about 50 feet and no skype….

    Oh that’s awesome.

    You might also try using a their where you should use a there or a they’re.

  5. PhilipNeri says:

    Dearest Fr. Z.,

    There should be no apostrophe after the “h” in “truth.”

    [I did that for the benefit of a couple of my self-appointed editors who rail against my occasional stray apostrophe’s.]

    Aaah! It’s grade 11 English class all over again! Grammar was my strong point in school, but my English teacher would interrupt our independent learning while he was marking papers just to go on a long rant about whatever grammatical/spelling error he came across.

    Ooh! And then there was my grade 9 English teacher who finally got fed up with people referring to our school as “St. Joe’s” that he marched the entire class outside to the front of the school where the school’s name was. He then proceeded on a long rant about how the school was “St. Joseph High School” not “St. Joseph’s High School” and that St. Joseph doesn’t possess the high school.

    One of my favorite 1976 titles that, I think, must be the precursor to this sort of post.

    I hate to admit it, but this reminds me of the scientific peer review process… ; D

  13. Bea says:

    At least you know we are reading you CAREFULLY.

  14. tioedong says:

    linked to my blog….we all need a good laugh.

  15. priests wife says:

    Actually, blogger doesn’t have spell-check available for titles…so this could easily happen to me… I might top out at 20 comments correcting me :)

    punchline SHOULD be: “My post mentions women and veiling”

  17. catholicmidwest says:

    Thanks for the link. Even the recommendations are hilarious.

  18. PhilipNeri says:

    Just in case it wasn’t clear. . .I was tweaking Fr. Z. just a little. (Ya know, the whole irony of pointing out an “error” in the title of a post about Grammar Nazis who point out grammar errors in the titles of posts).

    I am the self-declared Undisputed King of Punctuation; however, I’m not a Grammar Nazi. . .well, at least not so’s anyone could accuse me credibly.
