Who Are These Guys, Anyway?

For some people, when you say Strunk and White, their eyes light up and you can see them engage.  Others wait with a blank stare, listening politely and expecting to hear about some new celebrity or maybe a singing duo.  I am, for better or worse, one of the first.

Strunk and White are responsible for The Elements of Style, one of the most concise and well-known books on the English language.  It wasn't until after college that I realized the "White" was actually E.B. White, of Stuart Little and Charlotte's Web fame.

Recently, I was introduced to this little video.  I'm not sure Strunk OR White would approve, but it certainly is fun to watch.  Enjoy!
