Ol' Mrs. Pate* would be so proud of me

Yes, I played the grammar game. Not only did I win the followin' prize, but I also found myself rewarded with a very good offer on a pharmaceutical product for which I have no use and an invitation to go gamble at some Internet Casino, both of which I graciously declined by closin' their respective pop-ups:

This is a real GRAMMAR GOD!
You are a GRAMMAR GOD!

If your mission in life is not already to preserve the English tongue, it should be.
Congratulations and thank you!
How grammatically sound are you?
brought to you by Quizilla

Ed. note: the displayed picture is not that which was actually awarded by Quizilla, but more closely resembles my ideal GRAMMAR GOD. This caricature is the very likeness of ol' Mrs. Pate when she spied someone a'danglin' a nasty participle or usin' the object case where the subject case was proper.
By the way, did anyone else notice there was not a single question dealin' with the that popular grammatical mistake: a hangin' participle? I have heard, however, that it is now allowable to hang a participle, as long as it has been tried and found guilty accordin' to the grammar laws. The burden of proof on that one is a bit hard to get around, though, and, as far as I have determined, there has not been a participle convicted yet. Therefore, you be on your toes if you are thinkin' of hangin' one without anyone catchin' ya.

[UPDATE: I did forget to pay my attribution to Jim ... my sincerest apologies for my oversight]
