Stephen Fry

Never let it be said that this blog shies away from confronting sacred cows. Today’s target: Stephen Fry. In the video below, Fry tries to have his cake and eat it too — calling out grammar pedants for “showing off their superior knowledge” whilst … showing off his own superior knowledge. Perhaps the qualities we most despise in others are the ones which we most fear in ourselves. Plus, “Stephen Fry’s America” is absolutely terrible. Full disclosure, my own grammar is a mess; I cannot return a positive answer to Lawren Smithline’s immortal question “do you write like a Harvard man?” (Case in point, I’m not sure if I should have added a period to that last sentence or not; my guess is that a full stop would be ok but a period is not.)
