    On a local buy/swap/sell page this morning was a listing for a 'mercedez bench' motorised kids car.

    Ok, help needed. While camping this weekend I saw a sign that said 'No parking, Busses only'.

    I would have spelt it buses, but then I went to dictionary.com and it said that busses is also a plural of bus. I have never sent it written that way before, any thoughts?

    Just now on Facebook, someone has put up a photo of a "praying mantis". It took all of my willpower to not reply with a smarty response

    Why? Is the pic of something else?

    Was it not a praying mantis?

    I would have written it as preying mantis as well, but it is in fact praying

    I saw a rant on fb the other day full of grammatical errors, the funniest being 'garren tea' (guarantee)!

    Are we sure? Does it not "prey"?
    Looks like I have to hide in a corner and eat my words
