I’m alone at the precinct house with two of AnswerMug’s most prolific grammar violators. What’s the best way to coax their confessions?

      Are you absolutely sure that’s the best thing to do? It seems really barbaric to me, but I’ll take your word for it. (I just hope this isn’t another one of your hairbrained schemes that gets me in trouble and leaves me holding the bag. Grrrrrrr.)

    I said "get" not "have"!

    Oh. 

    I’m not very well versed on the intricacies of English vocabulary or structure. Sorry. 


    (By the way, please call the paramedics. Thanks.)

    There ain't not no good way, lesen you bait 'em with a handful of apostrophes on a dangling participle.

    I’ve tried that before, but it only resulted in cries of “Me too, me too”, so now, the Precinct Captain frowns upon such tactics. Grrrrrrr.

    And where am I during this? Just bring me in so we can play "good cop-bad cop." That never fails.

    Reminds me of a card I like.  :)

    I'll post it to Stu, too, so he makes sure to see it.

    A bribe. Vegemite and smashed avocado on toast might do it, but NO mayo.

      Great idea, I should give it a try, thanks for suggesting . . . hold on a second. I’d have to come into contact with that stuff in order to make the toast! Ewwww. Ok, that’s the end of that. Looks as if no charges will be filed in this case. These two are going to be released and their records wiped clean (of this incident). Grrrrrrr.
