if you have to spell it, yes!

SquonkTheBeerGuru · 25/04/2008 20:51

personally, I'd go with saddoes

It ending in a vowel and all. But I could be wrong

SenoraPostrophe · 25/04/2008 20:53

pointydog · 25/04/2008 20:53

saddo is a nasty, slang word and as such, shouldn't be permittted in Pedants' Corner

I csn tell you the rules. I think.

If a word is a shortened version or a foreign word or a musical intstrument, just add s.

EG photos, hippos, pianos

If not, add es.

I thought saddo was perhaps short for something but then couldn't think what.

Well some of us have saddo children so i don't think this thread is amusing at all. How would you feel.

pointydog · 25/04/2008 21:51

what do you mean, saddo children?
