Certain People Can’t Even Go Two Days Without An Embarrassing Revelation

From the National Post:

A trainer who consulted with Rob Ford as recently as Tuesday night on a health “game plan” was convicted in the U.S. for steroid trafficking and is currently in the midst of a 12-year ban from coaching in Canada for administering steroids.

Well, who are we to stand between an ex-con and his livelihood? All the best to misters Ford and Moscariello in this endeavour.

  1. My half-assed research suggested “misters” is a legitimate if uncommon plural. But fine, I’ll look in my dictionary.

    [looks]

    That was no help. “Misters”, which is incidentally on the same page (928) as “misspell”, does not have a plural listed in my 2001 Oxford Canadian Dictionary. “Messrs.” (p. 910) is a plural of “Mr.” but we already knew that.

    I’m going to say we’re both correct.

    To conclude, I need a bigger, better OCD. There must be a multi-volume deluxe version out there to clear stuff like this up.

    It’ll probably tell me “e-mail” doesn’t have a hyphen.

  2. Well, I’m correct but you arent! ;-) Next time, use your whole ass (h/t Homer Simpson).
    I’ve never seen “Misters”, but have regularly seen “Messrs”. I’ve also seen and used “Mesdames”, which can serve as a greeting, equivalent to “Sirs”. English is a wonderful language, but sometimes it lacks, how shall I put it, “justesse”.
