2016 Prediction Thread

Recommended Posts

BD gets minus points for ending a sentence with "on" and having an awkward show title.

As Dreams are Made On . . . ########. Hope that is better grammar for you.

Also that's just a really old joke when someone says they don't end sentences on prepositions.

The joke is often attributed to Winston Churchill--although I've never seen it definitively sourced--who is said to have responded to a complaint about his having ended a sentence with a preposition with this retort: "This is the sort of English up with which I will not put."

It's fine to end a sentence with a preposition. The "rule" against doing so is really meant to encourage people not to add prepositions where they are redundant, e.g.:

Don't say, "Where are you going to?"

Say instead, "Where are you going?"

Don't write, "Where are the Blue Devils rehearsing at?"

Simply write, "Where are the Blue Devils rehearsing?"

OMG, Evita got it wrong! ( "Another Suitcase in another Hall" aka the Drumcorps traveling song....)

I prefer a number of other Perry Como songs to that one.

Poetic license!

While that song is from Evita, it may be worth noting that Evita herself was not the singer in the original concept album / stage musical. Rather it was performed by "Perón's Mistress". But in the movie they gave it to Madonna (I remember one film critic grumbling about that).
