A new contributor, Jonathan Caws-Elwitt (look for his work soon in the pages of VERBATIM), sent me this wonderful knock-knock joke today.

Knock knock.

Who's there?

Objective case who?

No, objective case *whom*.

A sentence was at a job interview, and the interviewer said "we're starting a new paragraph and we have an opening for an unambiguous, declarative sentence. Do you fit that criteria?"

"Well," replied the sentence, "I'm pretty sure that I am probably the sort of sentence you may be looking for."

And the interviewer said "Sorry, but I'm afraid you are over-qualified."
