March 4 is National Grammar Day. In honor of this momentous occasion, you can win a free copy of Grammar Girl's book.
In the Comments section of this post, write a sentence that contains a hilarious misplaced modifier. An example of a misplaced modifier is "Flying around the room, I saw a bird."
The deadline is midnight Pacific time on March 3. I'll decide which one is funniest, and I'll reveal the winner on March 4.
