i adore the culture of new orleans and the bad grammar that it has spawned. i love studying and describing grammar usage, but please! who needs to be prescriptive when people want to say ‘who dat’? i am not the one to take away their joy! (or my own for that matter.)
to that end, please shun your high school english classes and join drew brees, the quarterback for fun! and if you take your language too seriously, then you probably shouldn’t be watching football anyway. so cheer for the supa beauxl (iv) or write your novel. choose wisely.
