Slag BS: English grammar question (351* d) RE: BS: English grammar question 27 Jan 11


Us and Gus and a dog named Cuss, gassin ' and a quibblin' in the band.

In speech, if you elaborated on the line, it might sound something like a Michael J. Fox line out of Back to the Future "me and you (pause) we....and you (pause) and a dog named Boo (pause), a traveling and a living off the land..." (with due apologies all around). Me and you functions as "we". Therefore, "we and a dog named Boo" it works lyrically and is grammtically okay, albeit marginal. Throw in a little poetic license and your their! (bait warning!).
