Sime titters...

I will literally DIE if you don't stop using hyperboles incorrectly

I before E... except when you run a feisty heist on a weird beige foreign weighty neighbour.

The past, the present and the future walked into a bar. It was tense.

A comma splice walks into a bar, it has a drink and then leaves.

Two quotation marks "walk into" a bar.

Three intransitive verbs walk into a bar. They sit. They drink. They leave.

What is Grammar?
The difference between knowing your s***, and knowing you’re s***.

The exclamation mark said to the period "Why aren't you bleeding?"

What do you say when you are comforting a grammar Nazi?
There, Their, They're.

A linguistics professor was lecturing to his English class one day... “In English,” he said, “A double negative forms a positive. In some languages, though, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative. However, there is no language wherein a double positive can form a negative.”

A voice from the back of the room piped up, “Yeah, right.”

What's the difference between a cat and a comma?

One has claws at the end of the paws and one is a pause at the end of a clause.

This led me to review how the Biblical languages fall into the categories.

That is more comprehensive, if one wishes to learn and understand the Greek language issues.

That is simpler, and illustrates the practical consequence in meaning of combining negatives in a specific verse.
