    Haha! That was funny~ =D

  2. DSL says:

    “Gave my friend and I a good laugh.”

    That should be, “Gave my friend and me a good laugh.”

    You wouldn’t say, “Gave I a good laugh.” Or would you?

  3. Lindsey says:

    I would :P

    From the dictionary –
    wont   [wawnt, wohnt, wuhnt] Show IPA adjective, noun, verb,wont, wont or wont·ed, wont·ing.
    –adjective
    1.
    accustomed; used (usually fol. by an infinitive): He was wont to rise at dawn.
    –noun
    2.
    custom; habit; practice: It was her wont to walk three miles before breakfast.
    –verb (used with object)
    3.
    to accustom (a person), as to a thing.
    4.
    to render (a thing) customary or usual (usually used passively).
    –verb (used without object)
    5.
    Archaic. to be wont.

    The word is used in the proper sense here –

    BTW @DSL – “my friend and I” is the right way to say it.

  5. Dr. Jonathan Bagby says:

    I also couldn’t help but notice the “no fish oil” sentence in the sign. This sign is very strange indeed. Heheh.

  6. Maura says:

    @Guru, “my friend and I” is NOT the proper way to say it in this context. The correct usage would be “Gave my friend and me a good laugh”.

  7. Bill Smalley says:

    ‘…my friend & me…’ is correct. It is the object of the sentence and therefore needs the accusative pronoun – me. But what about the random scattering of capitals? Only proper nouns are capitalized in English.
