Grammar is hot...

Someone just linked me to the best grammar guide ever: Thamiris' Sexed-Up Grammar Guide.

"Grammar. Punctuation. We despise them, yet they're essential elements to good story-writing. The question: how to make people care? I've come up with a solution: Ares, god of war. You don't care about comma splices? What if Ares licks your ear while he explains the ins and outs of the rules? Sound a little more enticing? Let's try it out."

It's a grammar guide using pornesque examples, basically. But it's a very *good* grammar guide, and also one of the only funny ones I've ever read.

"He pauses, flexing those amazing pecs. "Let's try one more. 'The god ran his fingers through his thick curls; she could only gasp in amazement.' See? Use a semi-colon, not a comma there. If you do it right, I'll consider running my tongue up and down your body." "

Brilliant, and I've been needing a grammer guide lately (it's been too long since I was taught anything yet I still know more than my English Language student housemate).
Site has been bookmarked for later perusal.

I have a french grammar book that's written on similar lines.

Those Gods! so self centered.
