A horror grammar lesson

Hung vs. hanged

Hanged refers to a person.  Hung refers to an object.

Explain more?  Sure.

There’s a large hook outside my house.  I found it at a yard sale and attached it to my house.  It’s a twisted, sharp hook.  I really like the hook.  Christmas time… I put lights on the hook.  If I were to talk to you, I’d say – “I hung my Christmas lights.”  Now, in the wee hours of January, being the serial killer I am, my instincts kick in and I find a fresh victim.  I take this victim home and to preserve them in the frosty air, I hang that person from the same hook.  If I were to talk to you, I’d say – “I hanged a person on my porch last night.”

Of course, this is all fictional.  Right?
