Is his brother King Diamond still alive? That's the important question.

And SSDR, being a grammar nazi is kind of self defeating when you start your question off 'did you accidentally the whole thing there...'

Redundant, AND ends with a preposition. Your rations will be halved for a fortnight.

Off of is stupid and redundant in this case, but the no ending with prepositions is a stupid rule.  From that link, if you followed it strictly you'd get a really farked up sentence like this that Winston Churchill wrote about the rule.

"This is the type of arrant pedantry up with which I will not put."

Scary thought....

You know who else is from the Poughkeepsie area?

Could this mean we will be enduring Snooki until 2100 AD and beyond?
