A double limerick from ‘The Queen’s English: And How to Use It’ by Dr Bernard Lamb.

A professor once told his tutees:
‘Write English just as you please.
Grammatical rules
Are simply for fools,
And spelling is only for bees.’
His colleague said: ‘No. To excel
You’ve got to use English so well;
If you know how it works
You can cope with its quirks
And write books which can easily sell.’

Which professor do you agree with? 😉
