Grammar fun and the menu

Well, I think I officially have a blogging party hangover, because the house looks like a bomb, my eyes are seeing pixels in my sleep and I think this stuff (below) is very funny.

We have a friend who travels to India. He found this sign posted outside of a hospital and took a picture of it.

For whatever reason they do not want the sex of the “feotus” (fetus) determined is unknown to me. That is not the funny part… it’s the: not practiced here.. part.

What? Is the law not practiced here? It is the implied modifier, is it not? So, the determination of the sex of the fetus is practiced here because the law is not practiced here. Or is the sex of the fetus punishable by law? There is no subject for either part, so we really aren’t sure who might be punished. I assume it is the fetus, sex determined or not. in which case.. the law is not practiced here anyway, so go ahead and do whatever you want. Common sense and grammar rules are not practiced here.

(Your thought is: perhaps she’s been correcting English papers too long, and she desperately needs a spring break) Correct on both accounts, all laws and common sense withstanding.

So, maybe I should get some fresh air and finish cleaning the garage. Thanks to everyone who participated in the first Blitz. I apologize if you could not see the LINKY thing. It uses something called: blenza, if you can not see it. I hope you will join me on Thursday night to link up for the Blitz-it Friday. We are seriously “hoofin it” and getting a ton of housework done in a short period of time.

Here’s what we’re hoping to eat around here this week.

Monday: Clean out the fridge soup

Tuesday: Indian collard greens and butter chicken

Wednesday: chili

Thursday: chicken casserole

Friday: taco salad
