    I read the line and before I clicked the link I went "You mean WHAT the problem is, is `is`".

    Now I can`t tell if what you did was intentional.
    It`s either very clever, or mind bogglingly not.

    Obligatory views of the worlds problems? Check!

    I liked the video up until the end, and I won`t like it any less for that little montage, but I felt it was pretty unnecessary.

    Also, why was Paul Posluszny tackling someone included in the montage? There`s nothing wrong with the Penn State Blue and White game. Unless this punk is a fan of OSU or Michigan.

    The description means "The problem is `is is`" There is nothing wrong with saying that. Also, "Although I think the big ocean between him and I puts me at a slight disadvantage!" should say "between him and me" as you are no longer the subject of the sentence, you are the object of the preposition.

    Well, while we`re making videos about butchering languages, we could always make one about how American English butchers proper English... and how proper English butchers Olde English... and how that butchers German...

    Imagine that. I guess everybody`s doing it.

    If I`m understanding this guy correctly (which I`m probably not... oh, and I`m deferring to his undocumented expertise here), you can say "...is is that."

    Why? Because you`re saying, " is" and "that is," (but restructuring the sentence, just like "rootbeer is" -> "is rootbeer," the example he used) and then combining the two "clauses" (I guess) to make a new statement... again, the rootbeer example.

    Now, the video used a couple of examples (including Obama) to illustrate how many people, even intelligent people, and people in the media, make the "is is that" mistake. But, I think the "is is that" (or is it, "is, is that"?) is acceptable. Then again, maybe I misunderstood.

    In other "is is" cases, though, he seems to be making sense.

    Should be, "the problem is this video."
    Or, "WHAT the problem is, is this video."

    If you don`t understand it, then I don`t know what your issue is. :) I get it.
