Regardless if I find what I'm saying is funny or painfully unfunny is irrelevant. I say what I say because I want to. You guys twist the words and meanings anyway so why should I go the extra step to convey humor if I want to be funny? Either way, everyone will find a way to make it funny to them, so I still win in a way. NL's enjoymen(t ,) Yoda seeks.
* - I always get screwed up here, as I had conflicting lessons. Owners of possessions get an apostrophe, but not always. I doubt I will ever learn the difference, so don't bother.
For the record: phonetic spelling and grammatical spelling is almost never the same. Claiming "ai" cannot be "ay" just because
is retarded, and you should feel retarded.
I can link you to some basic "rules," if you like. I can also give you the e-mail to a linguist I know, if you really
want to fight with someone
Hint: the someone is not me, because I'm over it [read:you].
I'm an adult and can quote you however I want. Get over it, fag.
