Included are the seminal writings of Quang Phuc Dong (English Sentences Without Overt Grammatical Subject), Yuck Foo (A Selectional Restriction Involving Pronoun Choice), V. Anantalinguam ("Up Yours" and Related Constructions), Ebbing Craft (Up Against the Wall, Fascist Pig Critics!) and other lost eminences.
