    IT RULES! What made me happy is teachers will probably show it. As someone who studied journalism I could definitely see it as teaching material and I got all nerdy and excited about it. I love it lol

    Top parody from Yankovic as always and a useful resource for any writer who isn't sure about their grammar and spelling.
    Or should that be "whom"? ;)

    Actually in that sentence 'who' is the proper word, it's a conjunction there.

    One uses 'whom' when it is the object of a preposition.

    My real crime was starting a sentence with "Or", unless such a thing is acceptable.

    I personally think you can start a sentence with any word, so long as it sounds OK.
    Or maybe the rules of writing outweigh the way it sounds?
    And I just like to please myself most of the time. With my writing, that is!
