The world in which we live in…*

* As Paul McCartney sang in "Live and let die".

I saw this in an Argos shop window:

Ballerinas wear a to-to, too.

James Higham said...

Live and let die indeed - imagine being caught in there.

DBC Reed said...

A more charitable view is that McCartney wrote about "the world in which we're living": this is the version given on the website Paul McCartney Lyrics Live and let die A-Z lyrics.
If you want to be uncharitable, then look at your punctuation of the possessive of Argos.Since it is possible to pronounce Argos's to indicate possession and impossible to pronounce Argos'( to indicate possession by a name ending in S) then the first is the way to do it.

S, I thought it was spelled 'tutu' like the Archbishop. Who interestingly never wore one.

JH, caught in where?

DBC, yes, and according to their song book, the Rolling Stones sang "Starbucker" not "Starfucker".

I've changed Argos bit.

Lyric writers can be forgiven because they have to make the words fit the melody, and some ungrammatical phrases simply sound good.

My sister got a 2-2 at university.
