The following is a public service message brought to you by the letter, "D".

"To" is a preposition which begins a prepositional phrase or an infinitive. "To suck at grammar."

"Too" is an adverb meaning 'excessively' or 'also'. "He sucks at grammar, too."

"Two" is a number. "Two bees or not two bees. Who's counting?"

That concludes today's lesson. Let that be a lesson to you and you know who you are. And, if you don't, ask Mr. Skip Towne. He will tell you.

How the the letter "D" get sucked into this? What did it ever do to be linked with the to/too/two (tutu?) family?

Stands for "dumbass" which is an appropriate term for people with this grammatical affliction?

Of all possible letters, this one seemed the most appropriate under the circumstances, Mr. Hydrae. For, as we are all aware, "D" is the very first letter in the word, "Dumbass".

This is all fine and good, Fax.

But what I'd like to know is the price of a vowel.

I'm in the middle of a huge career change, and funds are a tad tight.

Vowels are currently going pretty cheap, Mr. Dinny Blues. Except for the "A"s, obviously. They're in high demand these days.

Sticky has indicated that, if nominated, he will not accept and, if elected, he will not serve. That makes Gooey the front-runner followed closely by Gummy, Viscid, and Mucilaginous.

Not a problem. Anytime you use the word Missouri, just use rancid. It's practically interchangeable.

You could name your dog "Rancid", Mr. Skip Towne.

Come, Rancid!! Roll over, Rancid!! Down, Rancid!!! Down, I say!!! It has a ring to it and provides a solution to your difficulty in identifying articulative opportunities. But, honestly, I think you could find a better favorite word.

or maybe even lose, and loose. Yes, this also includes loser and looser. I refuse to believe that 20-50 yr. old men cannot figure out which one is which.

If she's not looser when you're done you must be a loser. Is that the correct usage?

Agreed, Mr. aturnis (Change Of Direction While Moving). There is, of course, also the issue of poop/poo/pooty/poot. Things would sure be a lot better around here if some of these knuckleheads could get this usage correct.

In addition to sounding the same any spelling may be used when referencing a womens breasts.

"She has (to,too,two) of the most perfect breasts on the planet."

Nobody will notice the difference.
