Dragon Facebook-off

Your dragon friend posted a notably illiterate posting to Facebook. He used "it's" as the possessive, "who's" instead of "whose," and even worse, he wrote "...for you and I." 

You are a crusader for correct grammar and spelling, even on Facebook postings. What do you do?

Do you challenge the dragon in the name of literacy, like a St. George of the library?
Do you ignore the dragon's illiteracy because, uh, he's a dragon and can either shred you or burn you in a few seconds, despite claiming to be your "friend?"
Do you attempt to use reason and patience to teach the dragon good English?
Or do you just draw his picture and then RUN LIKE HELL?

I chose the last of these options which is why I am still here posting.

Dragondraw is ink and greyscale marker on sketchbook page, 4 1/2" x 4", March 21, 2013. Adapted from the excellent dragon drawing book, "How to Draw your Dragon," by Spanish illustrator Sergio Guinot.
