last night (b)

“And the rain/It lashed down/And all the creatures/A’feared they would drown.”

Sparecat sorted himself out a nice new raincoat before venturing out into the darkness last night:

Kids! Never play with plastic bags and pets!

(For the logisticians among you, let’s examine that last caption, shall we? It should be understood as:

Kids! Never (play with plastic bags AND pets)

and not:

Kids! Never (play with plastic bags) AND (pets)

What a sad world it would be if the kiddies couldn’t play with some slavering German Shepherd/rottweiler eh?)

    It’s a bracketing disaster;

    “Kids! Never play with (plastic bags AND pets) ”
    would be the correct exhortation.

    “Kids! Never play with plastic bags OR pets”
    would indeed be a shame (which is what I think you were trying to say).

    “Kids! Never (play with plastic bags AND pets)
    and not:
    Kids! Never (play with plastic bags) AND (pets)”
    is just plain confusing.
