    I'll have you know that is the dumbest way to spell dumbest. It's like "dumb squared".

    This exceeding trifling witling, considering ranting criticizing concerning adopting fitting wording being exhibiting transcending learning, was displaying, notwithstanding ridiculing, surpassing boasting swelling reasoning, respecting correcting erring writing, and touching detecting deceiving arguing during debating.
    ~ Goold Brown (1851)

    This sentence takes advantage of the versatile English –ing. The author of a 19th century grammar guide lamented the fact that one could "run to great excess" in the use of –ing participles "without violating any rule of our common grammars," and constructed this sentence to prove it. It doesn't seem so complicated once you realize it means,

    "This very superficial grammatist, supposing empty criticism about the adoption of proper phraseology to be a show of extraordinary erudition, was displaying, in spite of ridicule, a very boastful turgid argument concerning the correction of false syntax, and about the detection of false logic in debate."

    Not only is this a great example of the wonderful crazy things you can do within the bounds of proper English, it's the perfect response to pull out the next time someone tries to criticize your grammar.

      I neither invented the English language its rules.  Advising me of your opinion on how you believe the word "should" be spelled doesn't change the fact that you misspelled it. 
      Thank you.

      I can't stand "I'm Too Sexy For My Shirt" and "Don't Worry, Be Happy".  There are about a zillion others, but these two immediately come to mind. Yick.

    I've been so base lately. I find these guys rather hot in an adorable, funny way. But I grew up doing exactly what these guys are doing -- every song liked, I lip synced while I listened. Those two remind me of guys when I was that age (they look teenaged) that I would crush on -- always liked the guys who could make me laugh.
    This was a fun video to watch.
