My Dear Vicus,
My guess would be dependant upon the way in which it was stated.

If stated as complimentary - then obviously your response would have been - fuck off you asshat fucktard.

If stated as an insult - then obviously your response would have been - bite me you asshat fucktard.

One can only assune that it was most likely the former rather than the later.

Vicus Scurra said...

No, B, notice is the quotation marks, that is actually what they said - they were talking about themselves, not me.
Have another guess.

Sheryl said...

I'll make a guess. You said "No, it's 'no one is as pedantic as I.'"

Vicus Scurra said...

First prize to Sheryl.
I think we all have her sussed, now don't we?

AAARRRRGGGGG!!!!!!

My new glasses had better arrive soon!
I congratulate Sheryl and her perfect eyesight.
Damn my eyes!
That being said, had they been talking about you, those would have been good guesses.

Sorry to be pedantic, but it should be EITHER, "no one is as pedantic as me," OR, "no one is as pedantic as I am".

Sheryl said...

No MNK, that's not correct. You have to have the nominative case of the pronoun, and "me" is the objective case. "As I" is perfectly acceptable, but you can say "as I am" if you want to sound a little less formal. (That doesn't concern Ken or me, as we strive to sound as pompous as possible.)

Vicus Scurra said...

Quite correct, Sheryl, although I would have phrased it "That concerns neither Ken nor I".

vicus, are you something horrible - such as a teacher ?

Vicus Scurra said...

Yes, I am something horrible.
No, I am not a teacher.
