In the last episode of Expelling Evil, Grammar Nazis, we saw the Captain Action Hero-Action-Guy Team move into Mickey’s Library with the speed of a Republican in Congress when there is legislation to be passed. The heroes were prepared to battle Dr. Evil and evil Dr. Evil’s evil minions. Captain Carl Action had encountered and pacified the evil minion known as the Agent in Red. He found ways to capture and interrogate her that, while not the least bit effective, were something that he really, really enjoyed.
So Carl, taking his time… an entire week if you can believe it! decided to extend his interrogation even longer, in spite of chapped lips and the total absence of lip balm. It was then that Colonel Komma and his evil Grammar Nazis decided to move in and attack the foolish hero-guy with Blitzkrieg word war.
It was true. I went back to that post and looked it up. The word wondrous was spelled w-o-n-d-E-r-o-u-s! Stupid Captain Carl! How could he be so heroically stupid? He let my wonderful, nearly perfect, purple paisley prose get possessed by a common, ordinary spelling demon. The Grammar Nazis had him in an impossible position. And his only response to the terrible situation? He misuses an apostrophe, placing it on a plural noun that is not possessive!
Then, just as Colonel Komma moved in for the editorial kill, Captain Carl came up with the perfect defense. He used his super-power of super stupidity as a shield. He successfully argued that you cannot be defeated by editing of your poor grammar if you don’t understand what they are talking about. Fortunes of war were suddenly reversed!
Captain Carl was not the only Captain Action present. Captain Bill Newguy Action stepped in to disarm the Grammar Nazi with his famous whack-a-doo smacketty-smack punch. The Grammar Nazis were defeated by the hypocrisy of trying to correct English grammar with such a thick accent that they were actually forcing the cartoonist to misspell stuff on purpose to accurately represent the weird sounds in their Grammar Nazi speech balloons.
Colonel Komma was no longer the kapturing konqueror he was hoping to be. Instead he had become the kaptured kook. But Mickey was still no nearer to having his X-Box back for playing EA Sports Baseball ’04. Dr. Evil still had control of that.
Oh, noooooo! Again!
