If a musician insists on playing a note when the sheet music indicates that nothing at all should be played, is the musician guilty of resisting a rest?

Aren't dad jokes just less mature versions of boy scout jokes?

Shouldn't some serious-sounding sergeant major interrupt now saying "Stop that! This started out okay with a funny bit about dad jokes, but now it's just gotten silly"?

Should we still be on the lookout for dad jokes? Even if we're not in the yard?

Is "I could care less" correct, or "I couldn't care less"?

Didn’t Weird Al also say that a grammar error made him “want to put a crowbar through your stupid head”, in the same song?(Not yours,atimnie, just in general.)
