Faux Pas

Post by ROU Killing Time » Mon Jul 27, 2009 2:31 pm

The people of Ceti Monarch IXXa had thrown off the shackles of the galactic overlord that ruled them with an iron fist, setting up a true democracy where no man would rule another.

They would live as Kings among Kings.

Each ones home would be his castle.

Sadly, they were unaware that cessations of signals from the overlord to the galactic hive would automatically trigger the dispatch of a Galactic Executioner.

Zorg the Destroyer spat derision at the rebellious throngs of humanity below as he released the planet-buster bomb from its bay.

“That will teach those Faux King peasants”

Hello ROU, this is Miss Grimsley here, your freshman English teacher. I have taken over Mr. Strawman's soul for a moment to point out to you that "Each one's home would be their castle" is the Freudian slip of a Faux King Communist. I will release Mr. Strawman as soon as you correct your "Miss-Possessive-Pronoun-ciation"! :twisted:

I admit to a blind-spot on possesives, but I'm having trouble identifying the exact nature of where I went wrong and how it should have been phrased. Ah, think it's the singular/plural conflict, no?

"Each one's home would be his castle"

Still this puts the burden on the men in the society, but then again, it's usually the men that put their foot in it on a geo-political (galactic-political in this case) fashion.

Ahhh...thank rou.
Yes, in today's Would-You-Rather game the rather stark gender choice is between geo-galactic foot in it vs. eating your baby's face. And toes!

Strawman must now invent time travel to go back several hours and erase this thread from his life. I hope it does not require becoming sub-quantum. My I/O devices are precious to me.

Don't do/did it, Strawman. You'll just end/start out completely messing with yourself for the rest of your foreseeable/foreseen time-continuum. A swift kick in the I/O devices with a steel-toed boot is preferable to that.

Trust me.
