What did you say?

I was working yesterday on an article about ruptured eardrums and came across this sentence in one of the references I was using. There's nothing wrong with it grammatically or syntactically, but I just hope no one takes it literally.

Teach your children about the damage that can be done by putting foreign objects in their ears.

Help, quick, can we get an editor over hear?


  1. Can we get an editor over hear? Bwahahahahaha. I spewed coffee on my monitor with that sentence.

    Have a terrific day and may you and yours have a very merry Christmas. :)

  2. Well, ouch, that could be messy :)
