FTFA: If you see a sign with a catastrophic apostrophe, send a kind note to the storekeeper. If your local newscaster says "Between you and I," set him straight with a friendly e-mail.

Is National Grammar Day followed by National Beat Down day?

Include/understand completely and therefore the company for the
promotion of the good grammar and the MSN Encarta we visualized march

We must very with

and the differences those we broad. If to respect and not to honor to
the guide of the reference with the English, we destroyed ours obvious

characters several that getlteman (Seriously_sort of. But he is
applicable that erroneamente of virgole fixed the company of cost
million dollars. The established excess murderous idiosynkratischen

frequent-slandered had modified the restoration updated for is not
exactly of you of the commerce in the judgment.)

How I can
participate? He speaks well! He writes well! And, you precede the 4 of
march and to the sketch of the piece the word. If you stop to come a
character with a mortal apostrophe they, transmits to famous pleasant

Some our members are the grammar of the
characteristic of Potlucks to glide in their offices. That the thing
you are he you used for potlucks the grammar of the characteristic?
High food of the fiber, of course. They are good for both points.
After, to the lucky hour, we suggested Grammartini. (the receipts are
here.)

We product of ingualmente a national packing of t-fitting of
the newspaper of the special grammar, therefore, that you can affirm
your love of the language, of the way that everything sees.

Pirate day is moronic, boring, and pretty much an annoying thing perpetuated by the uncreative.

How many posts can you read that just state "arrrrgh matey", or listen to people around you say it, before you are overcome with the desire to purchase firearms?

The guy who "invented" talk like a pirate day was featured on an episode of ABC's "wife swap."

Seriously, WTF?

And the MSN link makes it suspect too.

Sounds like the most unique thing I have ever heard of. I wonder what affect this will have on people. I guess I will just have to except it as fact.

the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar and MSN Encarta have designated March 4, 2008 as National Grammar Day.

Which nation gave them the power to designate special days? Can they also enter into treaties or levy taxes?

Give me a break. Anyone with a pet peeve about grammatical errors doesn't really know much about why they think they're errors in the first place.

Yeah, that was a singular "they." I wonder what other totally insignificant minutiae people might nitpick. Oh, that's a nice little redundancy for them. Hmm, how else might I help to make people feel better about themselves... ah! I've got it! A sentence fragment.

Yeah, so, get over yourselves. The only destructive force against which language needs to be defended are you grammar Nazis. Because believe it or not, refusing all change does more harm than sensibly accepting only necessary changes ever will. Use your brain, and stop pretending your rote learning from high school English equates to understanding of linguistics.
