To annoy people like you, and, by the way, capital letter for first word in sentence, it's IMBECILES, and there's an apostrophe missing from others.

Of course, to be grammatically correct, you really should not have used the word, and, more than once in the sentence.
The full stop after the word, sentence, before Plebs, may be a Roman signature and not necessarily the insult that you take it to mean. The term, plebeian, is the one best suited to encompass the common herd here, however.
When one writes with haste and considerable passion on a subject, it's all to easy, to get those vernacular parts, somewhat twisted.

Didn't know that using more than one "and" was a hard and fast rule - it's something I normally avoid because it just doesn't sound right. However, in my defence, I'd submit that the two "ands" I've used in one sentence are for different purposes, the first one separates two clauses in the sentence, whereas the second one is used to denote the last item in a list. I don't consider myself to be an expert grammarian but wouldn't you agree that two "ands" is, or may be, acceptable in those circumstances?

THE VERY LATEST NEWS: It never did snow?

After getting myself a sledge and skies not to mention the snow shoes wish we do soon get some snow after all. It’s been more than embarrassing carrying all that gear around with me just in case.

Please Lancashire Telegraph, give us some extra warning the next time please!
