The English language is a wonderful thing, particularly in this age of “democratization” when – apparently – anyone can write. Here’s an example of what happens when “anyone” does.

“Oi, get yer tits out, yah ragheads!” shouts one of the lads.
Mother Superior turns to Sister Immaculata, “I don’t think they know who we are, show them your cross,” she instructs.
