    I realize that the lure of fame surrounding grammar nazihood is hard to resist, but it is my duty as grammar nazi sergeant-at-arms to disavow this poseur. I know grammar nazis, I work with grammar nazis, grammar nazis are friends of mine. Oklacoma dem, you're no grammar nazi.

      ...the word 'SNOOT', rather than 'nazi', which has such unpleasant associations.  'SNOOT' is an acronym for 'Sprachgefuhl Necessitates Our On-going Tendance.'  This name was applied by a family of grammar nuts to themselves.  When a grammatical error occurred around the family dinner table, the mother of the house would grasp her throat and make choking noices.  (Bad grammar kills!)  

      PS I can't swear I've got the correct spelling for the first word.  But I hope nobody chokes.
