Eat the Rude: Hannibal Lecter meets the 99% / Boing Boing
It makes perfect sense that Lecter is a grammar Nazi; there’s no more cruelly polite way of putting someone in his place than pointing out his malaprops and solecisms, his lower-class dialect, his backwoods or inner-city pronunciation. Lecter’s swipes at Starling’s syntax and usage are fascinating studies in the way class is lived in America; the little, everyday ways we’re kicked back to our stations. And Lecter’s own syntax and vocabulary, not to mention his Buckley-esque sense of grammatical infallibility, have stories to tell, too, about the class insecurities that haunt even the well-bred and the well-read.
