Does or Do?

Another moran at the Glenn Beck Fan Club Party in Washington today. I think this one is protesting against irregular verbs in the English language. It are so hard to get them right.

Egads, did you have to mention Glenn Beck? Now I need a double shot of Buffalo Trace! Makes me proud to be a 'merican....fuck, make that a triple!!

No, this protester isn't protesting irregular verbs; the real protest is about having subjects and verbs agree with each other. Why should we have to enslave the verb to the subject, when we could liberate it from the subject altogether?

What's this business about berth certificate?

Frankie, I believe that the lady is a sailor and is upset that the president does not own a yacht or have a valid certificate of berth for a slip in the United States to keep his non-existent yacht in. Some Americans think that only people who own yachts should be president, and that anyone running for president should have a valid US berth certificate to prove they own a yacht. They are spreading rumors that the president actually has a berth in Kenya and so is not eligible to be president.

As it turns out the president does have a berth in Hawaii and he has a certificate to prove it. Although I don't think he keeps a yacht there.

Mmm... I thought O'Docker would have known about a berth for people with an O in their name.

Frankie, this all began when I once reposted a photo of a haughty sign on O Dock that says, "Berthers and Guests Only".

I started telling people that I'm a berther and then began getting some very funny looks, especially around Berkeley.

I also tell people that, because of the high demand for berths in almost every California marina, and because there are so few berths available, that young boaters should be taught about berth control from a very early age.

That gets me funny looks, too, but only when I'm not in Berkeley.

I really don't understand any of this.

The town across the bay, Bristol, has just discovered a way to have 95 more berths, all at once. It's a miracle!
