What no mention of smoking and the forthcoming ban?

 

Last time that I went into a certain Lerwick hostelery, no names mentioned, but they have a karaoke every week, I had to take a sharp knife, to cut through the fog, to get to the bar. This was mid-week and there was hardly anyone in there. The staff must have lungs like the inside of a tar-burner.

 

Is anyone on this fine forum up for using the bodies of smokers to power the heat to energy plant?

 

If anyone is wondering about paragraph 2, I am on commission. I get £1 for every comma that I use.

Its about time this issue was brought to the fore. Anyone who ends up in LerOOk should use a sharp knife to get to the bar

Tsk tsk distorted your grammar there Distortio. Unless your special bonus offer is on something unmentioned belonging to apostrophe, then I think you meant the plural apostrophes.

 

While I'm at it there is one notable exception to this rule which is often neglected:

 

it's means it is

its means belonging to it

 

If I had a pound for every time I've seen that wrongly printed, I could have bought you a few pints by now.

 

(PS I said "If I had a pound", you'll not get beer from me that easily.) :wink:
