Nat'l Grammar Day

I had no idea that today, March 4, was National Grammar Day. Huzzah!

Traditionally, we celebrate with malt liquor, s'mores, and discussions of English usage -- this year's topic: its versus it's. The pace of the discussion increases with the drunkenness and the sugar dosing, and the first to make an intoxication-induced solecism is crowned Grammar Fairy for the year, entitling him to a free small order of curly fries at participating Dairy Queen restaurants* and the Grammar Fairy Crown, traditionally made of toilet paper, fiberglass scraps, and spent Sharpie pens.

Even the most powerful have their difficulties with grammar:
