For your language-nerd approval, McSweeney's list of "Sexting Ice Breakers for English Grad Students."

For example:

“I’ve been examining your assonance all day.”

“Your analysis of Moby-Dick is so long and hard to navigate!”

“While the punctuation is grammatically correct, I could really go for a good interrobang right now.”

Try 'em. It could work! (Nothing's sexier than an interrobang, am I right?)

Thanks go to Hot Tipper Alithea, who also told me my favorite grammar joke: What's the difference between a cat and a comma? A cat has claws at the end of its paws, and a comma is a pause at the end of a clause. One million points for Alithea!)
