An ‘ear cropping’? Barbaric. I expected better of this strip.
You don’t have to maintain it—it simply is ‘lie low’.‘Lay low’ is absolutely incorrect. Lay/laying/laid; Lie/lying/lain.Its incorrect usage is fairly ubiquitous in most (American) media. However, if you simply understand how lie/lying/lain and lay/laying/laid function, or even the difference between ‘lying low’ and ‘laying (someone) low’, then it’s abundantly clear why it’s incorrect. Oh well :) Kudos for spotting it and pointing out out. Fun fact: apparently GoComics doesn’t appreciate paragraphs.
