Sounds like the kind of guy Goat would have for a friend.
Also, he seems a little too young and male to be a grammar.
I wonder if he trains the grammar police.
Now you’re past simple
Pig seems tense.
It’s a good thing that Pig didn’t end his sentence in a preposition!
I’ll give my grammar response, Dangling Participle!
Since today is tomorrow’s yesterday, and no day is completely perfect, does that make now present imperfect future past tense?
Some guys are a little too terse.
When I was in college, there was a professor that taught a course called (I think) “Technical English”. She was an short, older woman that wore a cardigan and looked like your favorite grandmother. In the first class, her lecture was how the one word in the English language that everyone always used correctly was f*ck.
He thinks he’s so pluperfect.
He looks kinda like the Comics Censor
Reminds me of a very old one:
“A guy goes to Boston on a business trip. Since he has never been there before he wants to try the local cuisine and, after some research decides the quintessential dish (after baked beans) is a seafood dish made from a young cod fish.
As he gets into the taxi at the airport he asks the driver ‘where can I get scrod?’
The driver turns to look at him and replies ‘You know, I have been asked that question many times and in many ways. But never before in the Past Pluperfect Subjunctive.’ "
“After time travel was discovered, The term ‘Future Perfect’ was dropped since it was shown not to be!” Douglas Adams.
For a second, I thought Pig was going to engage in a real grownup conversation…LOL
By next year he will have been fired because he will not have been able to earn any grants for studying such a ridiculous thing. That will have made his future imperfect.
Sounds great. Period, though I question it. Hope he hasn’t been in a comma.
I can’t think of any more exclamations.
You are perfect right now Pig X
Change the subject.
Perfectionism at its finest.
Complete Sentence. Good thing. Go do.
I prefer the plusquamperfect tense, or pluperfect if I (had been) in a hurry. . . .
A lost art!
This one went way over my head….guess I shoulda payed more attention in english class.
How does Goat survive in the little world of friends that surrounds him??
I’ll bet he’s tenured.
Professor is pretentious.
Really a good one.
Most of the past wasn’t. And I don’t have a lot of hopes for the near future.
Pig is a little pugnacious today…
I’m more present tense.
I tend more toward the imperfect, myself.
I once met a grammar professor in an airport. She seemed extremely nervous about flying so I spoke with her in an effort to put her mind at ease. She appreciated my kindness and we seemed to be hitting it off pretty well. I asked “Where are you flying to?” and with a haughty sniff she said “I will not respond to any question that ends with a preposition.” Realizing my mistake, I said “Oh, of course, I’m sorry. Here, let me try again. Where are you flying to, you stuck up b!tch?”
Some pigs are just too ignorant, too….
