If that title didn’t catch you, this comic should.

Dinosaur comics is one of the best things to come out of the internet. I wish I had the will power to read it every day, but there is only so much screaming I can take. On the other hand, they do have linguistics jokes every now and then. This one involves particles. Well, no, it doesn’t. A particle is a minor function word that has comparatively little meaning and does not inflect, like ‘off’ in ‘make off with the money’. ‘The’ is an article. Not a particle. But anyway. Let’s not focus so much that the sixth panel becomes true.
