A Thank You

Post by Royals » Thu Jan 17, 2008 2:31 am

To the twenty-one teams that picked between my last two picks. Thank you for focusing on Nevin Griffith's numbers that come from a small sample size and forgetting his arm and the poise he possesses. Y'all have made the agonizing I did between him and Kulbacki meaningless. Thanks. And if y'all could continue to pass over the guys I like between now and my next pick, I'll love y'all forever. Well, some of you.

Dude, one of the defects of the English language is the lack of a single definitive second person pronoun. The Southerners rectified that.

Hardly. Y'all is used in both the second person plural AND the second person singular.

Indeed, it can be. I only support the plural usage.

People who say y'all in reference to one person use it wrong. If you're talking to one person, you don't say "Y'all coming over later?" Y'all is only to be used for 2 or more people

Anyone who uses "y'all" at all is using English wrong.

I believe at this point, we all know that Bren is nothing but a pompus New Englander that is typical as to why most of the rest of the country hates the region

And Indiana is so wonderful that no one wants to live there... having been there, I can see why. My gut instinct says you've never been to New England.
Talking like you're ignorant (whether it's ignorant hick slang or ignorant urban slang) only demonstrates that you are ignorant.
