Today would have been E.B. White's 113th birthday. Perhaps most famous for penning "Charlotte's Web" and "Stuart Little," he was also a regular contributor to The New Yorker. These achievements definitely make him qualified to be that guy, the one who interrupts pleasant conversations by clearing his throat and letting you know that you used an incorrect pronoun.

Which is why he and William Strunk Jr. co-wrote "The Elements of Style," the grammar nerd's handbook. If you need to brush up on gerunds and participles, we recommend the recent edition beautifully and comically illustrated by Maira Kalman.

So what better way to celebrate the language/farm animal enthusiast's birthday than by pairing wordage rules and pictures of adorable piglets?
