comment Does standard English include non-trivial sentences which admit no verb?
@BillFranke, point taken, and apologies for offense caused. My intent was first to joke from a parallel construction, and second to tease a cultural group, which happens to be the privileged group of the culture and so should be able to take a joke. It wouldn't be fair to tease the dialect; dialects can't tease back.
