News I Can Use



I went looking for Michelle's arms but I believe they have been smuggled over the Syrian border.

how to get Michelle Obama's toned arms

with a chainsaw?

Righteous Bubba said...

I believe Acme has some kind of arm-removal device which I will send away for promptly. Also, I will not read the fine print.

you mean a chainsaw ISN'T an arm removal device?

Tell it to Bruce Campbell.

Lawnmowers, man, lawnmowers. Not that the chainsaw isn't noble, but there are a vast array of tools available for the job.

Video loopy Burt seems WAY too interested in this topic. AND WHERE ARE HIS HANDS? Busy off-camera or chain-sawed off? OR BOTH?!!!

Righteous Bubba said...

He's getting more interested one topic up.

tigris said...

Only once he gets home from church.

just think, RB, there would be crew on that scene who's job description was 'arm-chucker'

Righteous Bubba said...

"Is a vast array". I blame the arms that I haven't removed yet.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

I think it was right the first time....

Righteous Bubba said...

Naw, I'd go with the array being a singular item no matter what comprised it.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Now I'm more of a spelling zombee than a grammar zombee but it seems to me that the plural mode agrees between are and tools, not the array part.

i.e. You could also have put it 'there are a vast number of tools available for the job'.

Righteous Bubba said...

Still sounds clangy and I figure the object is still the array; "number" seems correct to me but it's a word with a lot of flexibility. I suspect it's just that English is screwy.

Compare with "There are a herd of zombies coming to eat my brain." The herd's a singular item and "are" should be "is".

I am a grammar failure incidentally, so I note that Google frequency errs on my side.
