I gotta ask, red: for someone so particular about language, why do you feel compelled to hyphenate "split-the-predicate" all the time? It's not a compound verb. AFAIK, "split" is transitive while "predicate" is the direct object.

I wonder if Dilbert ever worked for LM? Some of his material appears to be taking from there. Or maybe it was developed based on input from the FAA.

Earth to red33410....If you look at the entire context....Wally was stating that being "worthless" is a lifestyle. You would have Wally being worthless only at work.

Having written this, I still have reoccurring nightmares about forgetting what room my English classes were being held in. I was either off campus getting a Breakfast Jack with friends....or doing some other evil deed while the nerds recited "i before e except after c".

"Written this" because if I used the more familiar "Said this" you would jump on it and point out that I did not say anything. Actually, you might still say the correct description would be "typed" this....but I used my computer, so I really "keyboarded this".........

Red.....go have a Breakfast Jack on me.

What irks just about everyone is a Wanna-Be know it all making stupid comments about punctuation and grammar in a comic strip.

Why don't you write your own strip, then you won't have to worry about someone elses grammar!!
