Comments: Mockery, actually

Ah, reminds me of one of that kooky Natalie Wood movie Splendid In The Grass.

Hey, I was born in Brooklyn, and if you were spelling based on Brooklyn phonetics and had never seen the word written, splendid would SORT of make sense, no?

Though "Love is a many splendid thing." may be incorrect in American grammar, Love Actually is not an American film. Grammar has changed in the U.K. too, but some older sayings have been preserved, this included. Make no mistake: they managed not to.

I think I missed Justin's comment when it was originally posted, or I would have mentioned that, as far as I know, "Love is a many-splendored thing" is not actually an especially old saying; it's the title of a 1955 movie (based on a 1952 novel, A Many-Splendored Thing). Unless the title was a reference to something older, but it isn't that I know of. Anybody know any different?

Also, is there anything more delectable than an "I'm snidely correcting you" comment that manages to be wrong in all its particulars?
