Why did the nobleman eschew the slaying of the dragon?

Because it was a fool's gerund.

A gerund, infinitive, and a past participle walk into a bar.

Drinking, to drink, to get drunk

This joke may contain profanity. 🤔

A grammar book walks into a bar

* An Oxford comma walks into a bar, where it spends the evening watching the television, getting drunk, and smoking cigars.

* A dangling participle walks into a bar. Enjoying a cocktail and chatting with the bartender, the evening passes pleasantly.

* A bar was walked into by the pass...

I'm thinking of writing a joke about mispronounced grammar.

I'll gerund to it later.
