Grammar Cop: He’s The Juan Who Likes Refried Beans In Cannes

cousine.jpg

Complaint: Usage of the wrong word of foreign origin, a misdemeanor made hilarious for anyone with knowledge of elementary French; employing an apostrophe in the construction of a plural noun.
Defendant: Las Palmas Mexican restaurant, Honolulu, Hawaii. In close proximity to government buildings.
Report: Officer Smith of the Alabama Grammar Militia was investigating an employment opportunity in the Hawaii public school system when the offense was noticed. As he was out of his jurisdiction, and because he’s not a rules-breaking maverick like “Dirty” Harry Callahan or Martin Riggs, he simply recorded the evidence and fled.
Fine: $173 and complimentary catering of a small Quatrieme de Mayo party.
