Everyone knows that grammar is for nerds. What they don’t know is that grammar is only for the toughest, the scrappiest, the baddest nerds in all the land. I’m talking dweebs with UFC fighting credentials and authorization to carry concealed weapons.
True, we nerds all put in our retainers one tooth at a time. But unlike science nerds or computer geeks or those people who still wear Chewbacca T-shirts, grammar nerds must always be prepared for battle. Brutal battle.
For example, a science nerd can mention that water molecules look like Mickey Mouse with exactly zero fear of reprisal. There’s no danger that another science nerd will respond by screaming, “No! They look like Donald Duck!” and then punch him in the solar plexus.
