assessing asses

Andy

you know what bothers me?
people who say “collective asses”
it’s “collective ass”
if you pluralize you defeat the purpose of the word “collective”

Allison

wait…really?
i dont think i knew that

Andy

i think so
Allison

HA
Andy

i could be wrong, i suppose
but that’s how i’ve always seen it because
if you say asses

Allison

maybe you should get off facebook

Andy

it’s just like
why say collective?

Allison

well, because its not asses here and there
Andy

because collective implies that it is all owned by the group, making it singular.

Allison

its COLLECTIVE asses, not asses strewn all over the place
Andy
if you’re talking about a specific group of people or an organization,
which is the only time you would even use the expression
than the collectED quality of the asses is already present

than = then

jesus

i should really be editing this fucking poem
Allison
this is my favorite discussion ever
