Linguists Have Fun and a Question

The folks over at the Language Log are having a lot of fun with the latest XKCD comic.


An unrelated question: does anyone else see a resemblance between pictures of Michael Palin as a young man and Frank Schleck? No? Only me?


  1. I'd seen the XKCD comic, and loved it, but hadn't seen the Language Log response -- the slash fiction responses are too funny!

  2. It's stirring up a lot of joyful responses in the fandom communities online, as well. I expect to see Strunk/White on the list for this year's Yuletide exchange!

  3. This is totally the awesome. Thanks for pointing me to it.
