Short Thought 160 (language)

Due to language issues, ad copy on Amazon can be unintentionally funny. I was looking at winter boots and saw a listing for traction cleats that slip over shoes. Among its attributes was this:

“reduce risk of slipping down, especially for the old and pregnant woman.”

Well now! We certainly don’t want that! It’s one thing for an old woman to be slipping down, but we can’t have an old AND pregnant woman falling all over the place.
