  1. Or Matt Milk Carton.

    But it’s funny, isn’t it, how people have certain blind spots for singulars and plurals.

    The Chinese are programmed to add an s wherever there is none, and delete it whenever it’s there.

    And of course there’s the Maori youse.

  2. Now now, Mr Whale.

    I admire the courage of anyone who enters public life with a speech impediment.

    People like Ian Grant and David McPhail are lucky that their stammers tend to disappear when they speak in public. But for some the pressure obviously makes it worse.

    I’ll just be happy if Matt stops adding an s to Key. Of course he’s only one of tens of thousands who do this.
