Happy St. Patrick's Day from The Grammarphile!


Happy St. Patty's Day, you wild and crazy kids!  I hope you enjoy a Guinness or a lovely pint of green beer.  But whatever you do, don't drink with the guy who posted this message on Yahoo Answers.  He seems like an idiot.  An idiot who can't write too well and has no sense of punctuation, although he clearly has plenty of enthusiasm for using punctuation marks.

I had half a mind to answer his question ("Is it food color or what?") with a cryptic "Or what" and just let him guess what else might make that beer green.  But I didn't...it's one thing to be snarky on my own website, but quite another to be snarky on someone else's website, you know?

See, but if I were answering that, I would misspell all the words in an answer or tell him it's simply magic. With stupidity like that, you really just have to encourage it and humor yourself. :)

The person who wrote that had to clearly still been under the influence of whatever they drank on St. Patrick's Day. I would hate to see what they asked during Memorial Day.
