O Noble Tadhg,

Mr. Language Person was reading over my shoulder. He tells me that you
have committed the Harnfinkle Error. Mrs. Harnfinkle is the composite
avatar of all elementary school grammar teachers. She is the woman who
first replied to your question of "Can I go get a drink?" with "Well, you
_can_; but you _may_ not." 

Mr. Language Person says you must write, 1024 times, "I may not banter 
semantics with poor grammar."
