Gates of hell, part 2: Don't trust Bill with grammar ideas
I thought I’d share a laugh. MS Word grammar doesn’t always make the best choices.
For the sentence (part of an informational flyer about screening for colorectal cancer) that reads, “Women should have no more than 1 drink a day,” Word suggested the following substitution:
“Women should have no more than 1 DRUNK a day.”
I agree. In fact, one drunk a day is MORE than enough!
