Yay for Martha Brockenbrough and Jaime Temairik!

Check out hilarious and wonderful Martha Brockenbrough (aka MSN's Cinemama, creator of The Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar [SPOGG] and GLOP, a.k.a. Gorgeous Ladies of Publishing) and her new book, Things That Make Us (Sic): The Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar Takes on Madison Avenue, Hollywood, the White House, and the World. As Tom Robbins (Even Cowgirls Get the Blues) says,

"'Grammar' and 'glamour' have the same derivation: an old Scottish word meaning 'sorcery.' So, good grammar is not merely a glamorous antidote to creeping meatballism, it has the power of the black arts behind it. Martha Brockenbrough is hip to these secrets."

Illustrations inside are courtesy of Jaime Temairik (yes, that Jaime Temairik, the genius behind zombie sock puppets below).

Congratulations, Martha and Jaime!!!!!
