Our avian colleague admirably persists in provoking us to post, in this case on the tedious subject of grammar. Very well. The chimera that is the Ombirdspersonmoose presents the following for the Committee’s consideration:
In our inexpert opinion, 3Bulls! refers to this website (hereafter, the “blog”). Since authorship has changed somewhat since its inception, and in some cases continues to evolve, the argument could be made that no particular three bulls are wholly responsible for the content on the blog.
(We will also save our dear commenters the trouble of mentioning the possibility that no one wishes to be responsible for most of the content on the blog, and also that “content” may be a bit of a stretch in any case)
Since the current authorship/editorship comprises both discrete and overlapping characteristics, it could be argued that 3Bulls! is representative of a single gestalt entity, possibly for tax purposes, which may or may not divide into three recognizable parts. A Venn diagram might be useful, or a precise breakdown of percentages, but we suspect it would arouse the passions of certain non-partisan non-affiliates. Also, it is giving a portion of the (disputedly) human-ungulate-avian section of said entity a stinging headache that can only be remedied with gin, and possibly recusal.
We agree that any possessive form ought to include a suffixed apostrophe, despite aesthetic considerations, and that other punctuations such as commas should follow suit (see ass, half-). Consider the usage as applied to the band Against Me! or the British television series Chef! for further reference. English, in the words of the estimable Doghouse Riley, makes a poor cudgel. It is also, however, in our estimation, a reasonably functional colander, and this is how we shall employ it: straining meaning where possible, and finding new meanings where unintended.
We therefore leave this to the vivid imagination of the readers, and their aptly improvised grasp of theoretical grammar constructs. Other complaints, if any, may be sent to the usual address.
