The past, the present and the future walked into a bar.

It was tense.

How many pedants does it take to change a light bulb?

Three. One to change it, one to complain about a spelling error on the box it came in, and one to check the dictionary (lightbulb or light bulb?)!

I'd like to sincerely thank everyone who took the time to help me to understand the definition of the word multitude......... It means a lot.

Neil - you've just reminded me: I caught my children looking through the "S" section of the dictionary....

I think they're up to something.

No. You've lost me. At the risk of sounding like a tit, is it Morse code or something? Even if it is, it'll still need explaining to me. blush
