We have been paying the price ever since. grin

So, I say "PTUI!" to all those apostrophe abusers, those who cannot use "less and fewer" properly, etc., and think it matters not.

How about this one:
Love people. Cook them Tasty food.
Vs
Love people. Cook them. Tasty food.

My wife is a great cook and has that saying near our kitchen (the first one!) I keep threatening to "correct" the punctuation for her!

Or for post-apoc zombie gamers:

"Let's eat, Grandma" vs. "Let's eat Grandma."
