Attack of the Daves

The builders are called Dave (both of them). The electrician, while not being called Dave, answers to Dave. The plasterer (who arrived this morning) is called Dave.

It's a conspiracy, I tell you.

Luckily the plumber is not called Dave.

But are they calling you guys Mr Dave and Mrs Dave yet?

They'll be from the London.pm Dave collective then.

You got a problem with Dave's?

No, just with grocer's apostrophe's

Sorry, its an absolute must :-)

ultra-meta-nitpick: according to the Chicago Manual of Style, apostrophes are permitted in pluralisation where ambiguity would otherwise arise. Thus the shortened form of bisexuals is bi's, not bis.

Dave Barry quote: An apostrophe does not mean 'Look out, here comes an "S"!'

He'll not be called John?

No, he's a Mark.

Still biblical, of course...

It was always a standard joke at (financial) college that the guy who ran the warehouse was always called Dave...

The scary thing is that it's true!

Reminds me of Minneapolis fandom who at one point had the Legion of Super Davids for reasons I can't quite put my finger on.
