    Les could barely count on his fingers.

    It was a cunning plan, really.

    I wonder how Rowan Atkinson feels about this.

    All the other checkout lines were constricted.

    Ten Items or Fewer, not “less.”

    Why would anyone obey a nonsensical sign like that?

    Les(s), the blank adder, decided to plead ignorance. They accepted his plea, noting that he was not counter-productive.

    Actually, Les thought they mis-spelled his name on the sign, but went on using that check-out anyway.

    So much for Les’ giant ASPirations.

    It’s 10 items or FEWER. Weird Al would be appalled.

    Another Farside snake. Where is Darwin when you need him. It’s been 30 years.

    It seems obvious that the express lane is the one in the middle, not the checkout where Les has plonked his purchases.

    Ummm… maybe because “less” has been grammatical for this meaning for a long, long, time and the less/fewer rule is bogus and made-up? Just maybe…

    Okay, now I’m confused — is Les a bad adder because he can’t count to ten, or is Les in the right lane because the choices were either ten items or Les?
