Quote of the Day

Old Money3

“Here’s the deal, Grampa, a guy I think was an explorer left this in the bar one night.  It may be a map to ancient treasure, or directions to some guy’s house, but to find out we’ll need money, we’ll need provisions, and a two man diving bell.” – Moe
“It’s pretty stupid, but so far you’re the front runner.” – Abe “Grampa” Simpson

Happy 20th Anniversary to “Old Money”!  Original airdate 28 March 1991.

    This is one of my favourite examples of what the Simpsons was capable.
    I can’t believe it’s twenty years old!

    Can you please learn that vocative comma is mandatory? It’s “Here’s the deal, Grandpa” and not the other choice (just as it’s “Come on, Eileen” and not the other choice). You make this mistake in every post.

      “Can you please learn that vocative comma is mandatory?”

      It’s not intentional. I have tried several times and very sincerely to learn grammar and it never takes. Nor is my ignorance limited to English. I flunked out of Latin, failed miserably at Spanish, and never understood more than the very basic rules of French. I had to Google “vocative”.

      I’m guessing at probably half the commas I use, and I’m sure I often guess incorrectly. In general, I shy away from having a single word bracketed by commas. I couldn’t tell you why other than it just looks goofy to me.
