The UN-Grammafication of America continues

 The UN-Grammafication of America continues and continues to piss off Grandmas everywhere…Psychologically, it is an evolutionary imperative that language will evolve, much like its speakers. The problem is, this phonetic evolution usually leaves the previous generation feeling a bit communicatively chafed. Theres a whole group of Syntax Scorned Seniors shaking a rigid finger at an out of control youth.

I am a rabid word blender on a mission to make my modifications mainstream. I advise everyone to get on board and become their own Grammar Guru.
