“A plea for sanity this National (US) Grammar Day”

What I cannot defend, however, is asshattery in the name of grammar.

Lexicographer Kory Stamper makes the plea for grammarians to be less douchey this National Grammar Day. I appreciate the sentiment, but feel like it’s asking people to say “Yarr” less on Talk Like A Pirate Day. This isn’t lost on Kory, who warns against “vigilante peeving” and encourages grammarians to use the day in positive ways.

    I hate these [blank] days/weeks/months. Talk Like A Pirate Day is just as stupid as National Grammar Day which is just as stupid as April Fools which is just as stupid as Pi-Day …

    Peter you should be glad you not IDG anymore. They are now look like they are completely off their collective rockers because the more with less seems to ruining them.
