Nuthin' but a 'G' Thang



A gerund is a verb form which functions as a noun; in English ending in -ing (e.g. asking in do you mind my asking you?).

Some genius creative for the IN campaign (ING campaign?) has decided that G is omitted if one is down with da yoot. How is you votin.co.uk on June 23rd?

This campaign is ridiculous. Do the people behind think that kids are morons who can't understand arguments as opposed to slogans?

Notes

1. I am open to the notion that we may be dealing with present participles here rather than gerunds. The words not being in sentences it is difficult to be precise. Let's take these stand alone words as nouns.

2. This is the first time I have embedded a Facebook video. The secret sauce for that is at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/embedded-video-player
