Lately I had to admit to my students that I still have a thing or two to learn about semicolons (turns out you can use those little buggers to separate clauses that appear to contradict each other - Who knew? Well, everyone but me...) and it got me thinking about that swell M.C. Frontalot song, Tongue-Clucking Grammarian (here's a little sample - and lyrics). Then I saw this image today (borrowed from cheezburger), and I had to smile. Semicolons, I'll beat you yet; I will.
