March 4 -- National Grammar Day

No, I am not making this up.

In fact, here is a link:
National Grammar Day: Brought to you by the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar

Let us not pluralize words using apostrophes.

Let us capitalize the first word in sentences and offer proper punctuation at the end of them.

Let us PLEASE separate thoughts into coherent paragraphs and least try to properly spell words we use.

Avoid rap music.


For me, I would like to take this a little further, perhaps off into our spoken lives as well.
For instance, last month was February, and the r in that word is not silent.
The budget deficit is "huge," and the h in that word is NOT silent.
"Salmon" is good fucking fish, and the l in that word IS silent.

Did you guys know that people HONESTLY look at you different and more positively when you properly punctuate and spell, properly enunciate spoken language and you abandon the whole "it's just the iNtaRWebz, who karez?" aesthetic?

Think of it, look at this sentence:
"I am going to help my uncle jack off a horse."
and now:
"I am going to help my uncle, Jack, off a horse."

The difference that capitalization of proper nouns and use of proper punctuation is the difference between helping your uncle, named Jack, down from a tall animal and you becoming an accessory in bestiality.

You're REALLY doing this for yourselves, I promise.


Seriously, give it a try.


Can I please get this for at least one day?
