Nazis. I hate these guys

nazis-i-hate-these-guys1Today’s video comes complete with a rant.
A very short rant.

I hate those individuals that proudly proclaim their being “Grammar Nazis”.
First – and it’s a purely ideological thing – I find anything, but anything, coupled with “Nazi” and then displayed proudly to be highly offensive.
Secondly, I find these characters’ obsession with grammar, synthax and phrase morphology (whatever that is) a poor excuse for the fact that they are as creative as gnats, but more self-centerd.
And it’s interesting to discover (see link down below) that the term originally referred to those that make mistakes, not those that correct them!

But enough of this.
Here’s a very fun, and highly intelligent video, featuring Stephen Fry‘s voice and opinions (which I undersign fully).
