Bear With Me On This

Howard Bashman of How Appealing refers to the plaintiff in a recently-decided Supreme Court case as "the grammatically-challenged Ours Garage and Wrecker Service" of Columbus, Ohio. That's a little harsh. "Ours" is French for "bear" (unless the bear is female, in which case she's an "ourse") and the company is most likely named after its owner or founder. Next up: Ours vs. Bashman, a groundbreaking case alleging discrimination against Franco-Americans.
