Ok, so I'm not normally one to be a sanctimonious prick. Actually ... that's not true; sometimes I love nothing more than being a sanctimonious prick. Anyway. I just wanted to say that ... IT'S SPEEDOS NOT SPEEDO. We (Australians) invented the damn things and we get to decide what they're called, ok? Good. And it's really not surprising that we use the plural. After all, when did you last wear a jean? or a trouser? or a pant? short? jodhpur? calvin? brief? chino? chap? budgie smuggler (that's another Australianism)? Have you worked it out yet? Two-legged (or -holed) garments worn on your lower half come in the plural. And only in the plural. Thanks Here endeth the lesson.
