Grammar Can Be Fun

National Grammar Day doesn't have to be an ode to painstaking rules like "i before e, except after c" -- it can be an excuse to rhyme! Ragan's Grammar Day Limerick Contest yielded some delightfully clever results.  Who knew a misplaced comma could lead to cannibalism?! For those of you who are curious, here's the winning entry:

     My ex-boyfriend's, grammar, was minimal,
     His, intelligence sharp, but, subliminal.
     But, finally after, cracking,
     I sent, him packing,
     Because his, use of, commas, was criminal.
