As far as the hats go, I think it's safe to say that I'm pretty well set. Unless my hat, pre-dating Time itself, needs a hat of its own??

I think you didn't get the point. I know the difference, but I used It like a noun. Try substituting It with Jack to understand what I mean.

We understand you perfectly.

I should have used Meredith instead of Jack while we're talking about recursion.

No, they're* talking about someone like Cousin It, in which case, yeah, that would be It's book. About the cursed hat, though, did you mean "who is that cursed hat?", or "whose is that cursed hat?", i.e. "to whom does that cursed hat belong?"
Any way you slice it, though, it's still me** and mine.

* she, he, it, It, whatever
** properly I, I know, but who really says that?

Ok, that was actually wrong. I meant whose.

EDIT: and I think it's actually "it's still me", since the subject is "it" and not "me". On the other hand, I'm italian and they don't teach english too well here.

The predicate of a copula is in the nominative/subjective case in at least most languages, including English. But, in casually spoken English, we often use the accusative/objective case anyway.

I think if someone gave me a tiny trebuchet for my tiny sandcastle, I would marry them on the spot.

You know, I think I'd do that too.

This is also a Most auspicious occasion and president breaking, the zoom in is the most change in frame since the beginning of time! My heart is beating right through my chest.

edit -- messed up the quotes.

Only when using it as a pronoun. When It is a proper noun (e.g. referring to the Psammead in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Five_Children_and_It), the correct possesive is "It's".


It's not a proper noun in that context, just as "he" is not a proper noun if it refers to Joe.

Quoting the Wikipedia page linked,
In Five Children and It, the Psammead is described as having “eyes [that] were on long horns like a snail’s eyes, and it could move them in and out like telescopes; it had ears like a bat’s ears, and its tubby body was shaped like a spider’s and covered with thick soft fur; its legs and arms were furry too, and it had hands and feet like a monkey’s” and whiskers like a rat. When it grants wishes it stretches out its eyes, holds its breath and swells alarmingly.


No use of "it's" or "It's" as a possessive.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Possessive_pronoun

There could be someone named "It", I suppose. Cousin Itt in the Addams Family might be an example, but Itt's name is not spelt "It". The Psammead, above, is not named "It", but it is called "it".

This is one of those many traps in English. "It's" is either a contraction for "It is" or "It has", depending on context. It is rarely (never?) a contraction of "It was". It is one of most frequent errors in written English.

I think we all share Cueballs sentiment right now \o/

EDIT: Img fix


I think the comic could end right there, and I'd be satisfied.

I'm back!

EDIT: P.S. I think the mini tree-bucket is just about the cutest thing ever. Next to my bunny with a hat, that is!

Hey dawg, I heard you like sandcastles and trebuchets, so I put a sandcastle on your sandcastle so you could hit sandcastlies with trebuchets while you hit sandcastles with trebuchets.

Also, the recursion has gone out of control.

I think I found a solution for the its/it's conundrum. Use "It be" and "their" (or one of the other gender-neutral alternatives)!

On a side note, I think cueball's sentiments echo my own exactly, on the topic of the tiny trebuchet.
