Grammar Cat #121: Holy Cat

Can you help this cat? Think about how to improve the English and then click "Show Correct Cat" to see a corrected version. There are some English notes at the bottom; if you have a question that is not answered there, leave a comment!

YEZ I IZ = Yes, I am 
Don't forget the comma after the interjection.

HOLIER THAN THOW. = holier than thou.
The phrase "holier than thou" uses the old-fashioned style of the King James Bible. The word "thou" is equivalent to modern-day "you," so "holier than thou" means "holier than you."
