    Mike suggested that dogs are better than grammar because they can show affection. I then started listing the chores associated with dogs that grammars don't require, like walks to the park.

    HAHAHAHAHA, interesting. Now I got the first part.

    The "sensei" said "Ah, but some people's grammar is poop." I don't get it. Is there any sarcasm here?

    Indeed there was. It means that some people use bad grammar when they speak and write. That was not aimed at you students. :wink:
