Reddest Radish and Yello Dello

To answer your question, In Search of the Yello Dello has two versions. The original (in which Marzipan does not speak) predates The Reddest Radish, but I'm not sure the new version does. Lemme double-check. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 03:09, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

Results were inconclusive. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 03:13, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
Also, where does Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 1.0 fall in the mix? It has a date of 2000 listed. — It's dot com 03:14, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

Annoying Apostrophes

Ha! No way. I'm a real grammar stickler, so I tend to round up apostrophes into their places like the proverbial sheepdog, or perhaps a kindly matron with unruly children. Ahem. So. You haven't read Eats, Shoots & Leaves, by any chance, have you? - Michelle Mabelle 22:15, 6 May 2006

I tried, but the way I am prevents me from reading any book written by someone who hates Who Framed Roger Rabbit. That is like, my favorite movie. I've seen it, like, a hundred times.--Jnelson09 21:19, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

LOL—I wonder what it's author has against the movie. (And how you knew that without having read the book!) Personally, I have mixed feelings about it; although I feel strongly about correct grammar, I've heard it reviewed as unpleasantly snarky and holier-than-thou. (I have my limits; I expect any reasonable person to acknowledge that there are different standards for written language depending on the purpose of writing, and only in the most formal of them is it acceptable to take someone to task for ending sentences with prepositions.) —AbdiViklas 21:41, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

Hey, Abdi. Watch local news again. LOL!!!!--Jnelson09 21:44, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

Wait, I'm confused. Is there a prepostion at the end of a sentence there? 'Cause it definitely isn't one of the things he takes on in Rhythm 'n' Grammar. But that's my point. To end with a preposition is human. To misplace a modifier or use unparallel construction is... of the devil. (But you know what really gets me agitated? The construction "all are not" instead of "not all are"! I'm completely making this example up, but something like: "Many in New Orleans were devastated by the destruction of Hurricane Katrina. However, everyone was not displaced; Mr. Blank, who stayed, said..." No, dear. If "Everyone was not displaced," that means no one was displaced. You're thinking of "Not everyone was displaced. I ran across some instance of that in the newspaper the other day, and expressed my emotion upon the paper in a way that left it a little closer to being recycled. —AbdiViklas 21:58, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

Whoa, Whoa. You spelled "its" wrong. That's all. I just thought you would know.--Jnelson09 22:26, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

LOL!! You're right! That's the wierdest thing. It bugs the heck out of me, but on an alarming basis I catch myself doing it. Dagnabbit. —AbdiViklas 22:32, 6 May 2006 (UTC)
