Are You Following Jesus This Close?

My friend Sunny from New York was in town last week, and all my friends and I are trying to convince her to move to Austin. While driving around funky South Austin, we were behind this truck, which might just have the creme de la creme of Austin bumper stickers. Case and point to why she should move here.

Ridiculous! Exquisitely ridiculous. I got a good laugh out of that one.

should it be "closely" instead of close?
queens of grammatica, feel free to correct me. just working off a hunch.
but no really, i laughed out loud.

No, you're correct. It's modifying the verb "following" so it's an adverb, requiring the -ly suffix.

When I typed the header for this post, I actually typed "closely" and then realized the bumper sticker was incorrect. For some reason, it didn't bother me. Maybe because it's so damn funny.

I've seen that one before. Very popular in the southeastern United States.
