"That’s a pretty lame superhero name,” I told him. "Scooby-Doo is already taken,” he said with dignity. “Anything else sounds lame in comparison." ~Patricia Briggs (Bone Crossed)
An actual conversation my neighbor and I had (as closely as I can remember):
, do you see the sign for that new pizza place over there? How would you pronounce that? Nancy
Me: Thank you. Jeff suggested we try their pizza. I told him I can’t eat there simply because of how they spell their business name.
Me: He also tried to tell me that it’s okay for them to spell “blazing” that way because “pizza” has 2 Z’s and they’re being cute.
Me: I think I’m going to become a superhero called “The Grammatically Correct Tagger”. I will fix those kinds of signs with a can of red spray paint. What do you think?
And so my alter-ego was born…
I'm proud to present:
I'm still working on the GCT's equivalent of the bat-signal so, for now, you'll just have to email when you're in need of my corrective spray paint. And I'm a new kind of superhero so there will be no wearing of spandex.
