I commented on this one somewhere else, sometime… As I said then, I understand the use of deliberately bad grammar for humorous effect (Mercenary Proofreader has been known to do the same thing from time to time), but any English major ought to know about, y’know, commas and stuff.
I am a strong, independent English major, and I don’t need no math.
So there it is with the punctuation corrected (by someone with a degree in art education, no less). Now for the rant about the idea expressed…
To hell with the notion that a person can be good with words or numbers but not both. It’s not a dichotomy! NOT A DICHOTOMY! (Also, the whole “left brain/right brain” thing has been disproven, so don’t wave it at me.) Some people are good with words but not numbers, it is true. Some people are good with numbers but not words. Some people are good with neither, though, and some are good with both. Deal with it, and don’t blame any mathematical inadequacies you may believe you possess on having chosen to study the written word.
