Strip by: Manyhills

Jon: Hey, Garfield, you know that checkout lane at the grocery store for 10 items or less?
Jon: Well, sir, I made it through with 12, count em', 12 items!
{A crosshair forms over Jon's heart}
Man in Black: This 'Jon' person... he was never here.

The author writes:

I'm sure you all know that it should be "10 items or fewer" and people write in to Tesco et al. and say 'it should be "10 items or fewer" '. The result is usually that it gets changed to "Under 10 items".
