    Then there's Ozark dialect. I can't describe how it sounds, because I can't bear to listen to it. Makes my ears bleed.

    The Cajun lingo makes me want to scratch a chalkboard. It sounds like a donkey trying Vietnamese.

    It is. Thanks for catching my error of leaving off the all-important question mark.

    Yes. It was a good thing that I pointed out your erroneous failure to use a question mark at the end of your sentence because without that question mark it was impossible to understand what you were trying to say.

    What a terrible nickname for people to call their home state.

    Now, if you all live in Iowa, that would be different.

    Not as much as lazy and sloppy posts do.

    By the way, no one has said anything about you grammar issues (so far).

    Powdered locusts don't sound like the most edifying ingredient...
    Agreed. That doesn't sound "edifying" at all.

    About halfway through it, so far, I've noticed fragments and run-on sentences.

    It's still a good read. (Especially when one considers the identity of the author.)
