Tossing and Tortured 'Till Dawn

I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide.

The stuff people make up.

Dr. Paul Brians of WSU has put together this excellent website regarding common errors in the English language. Take a look at it!

In a discussion about the proper use of sentence fragments, (some exist) he creates this amusing little number inspired by the Illiad

Menelaus: Aha! Helen!
Helen (startled): Beloved husband!
Menelaus: Slut!
Paris (entering, seeing Menelaus): Oops. 'Bye.
Menelaus: Not so fast!
(stabs Paris). Paris: Arrggh!

Dr. Brians should have a little sit-down with Strong Sad.
