Kelsey Grammer Finds His Life's Work: Correcting Grammar on the Internet

By Vivian Kane | Celebrities Are Better than You | June 30, 2014 | Comments ()


Kelsey Grammer is a man on a mission. Earlier today, he joined twitter with the sole purpose of cashing in on his pun-ready name and correcting people’s grammar.

He started with the easy one. The one that bugs us all the very most.

And moved on to defend the poor apostrophe.

His fourth-ever tweet was to our very own JoRo. But of course he found nothing to correct. Only praise there.

How long before this joke gets old, do we think? Will he tire of it before then? Do we also think that maybe he tried this bit out in elementary school and got beat up a lot because of it? Well, who’s on the receiving end of the grammatical equivalent of a wedgie now, bullies?

Vivian Kane is sure she made at least one grammar/Grammer mix-up. There was much deleting and editing during this post.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    Kelsey Grammer has been a grammar/language nut for a while. I remember seeing a late night talk show interview with him years ago and he went on and on about the correct pronunciation of "culinary" and "succinct".

    Hmm... Twitter seems like the worst place to correct people's grammar. In my few attempts to get to grips with Twitter, it seems like skipping good grammar practice is often required in order to type what you want to type within the character limit.

  • Am I the only one who thinks he missed a golden opportunity by not using @I'mListening?

    David Hyde Pierce needs to be involved in this somehow. Please Gopdtopus

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    If that happens, I will be deliriously happy.

  • ferryman

    I welcome his corrections and quiver at the thought of a personal "grammar reprimand"!

  • logan

    Not to be a nit-picker but if he is truly the Grammar Czar isn't his name spelled wrong?

  • JoeK

    The thing is, anybody out there with time and a copy of Strunk's Elements of Style can solve their grammar woes, but Transformers: Age of Extinction will be on Grammer's résumé forever.

  • There's no such thing as correct grammar -- just elitist posturings that condemn and stifle ideas that don't conform to arbitrary rules!


  • JJ

    But I don't know what to do with those tossed syntaxes and scrambled aspects...

  • Kris

    Good luck to him. I used to correct the grammar of Yahoo commenters when I got bored at my old job.

  • Emm82

    A part of me really hopes he's only part joking since when I get trolls on Twitter, the spelling & punctuation bugs me more than the message!

    After reading a piece about how his life resembles a modern-day Greek tragedy I will refrain from criticizing the man's silly attempts at humour.

    Sweet Jesus, someone give this man a hug.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Listen Kelso Gamma I dont know who you think you are but we dont need your grammo corrections here. Were perfectly fine the way we is.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    You may have killed me with this post.

    Ah you know I live to give

    We need to make an app Kel-C-Gram, where crotchety old men weigh in on weighty issues using unfiltered words splashed across heavily filtered selfies. And then everyone can become a Kelseygrammer.

  • stella

    Well it is literally in his name...

  • e jerry powell

    Boyfriend has a long row to hoe on this one. Fixing just Twitter will see him to his grave, and there's still the rest of the Internet to deal with.

  • janeite1900

    This works for me because I hear his voice when I read his tweets.
