I picked up a small sample tube of toothpaste at the dentist's recently.
It is labelled
repair & prevent
Reading this, I automatically want to say, "What does it repair and prevent?" as both verbs are transitive and should be followed by an object.
Next point: toothpaste is singular, so it should have stated "repairs & prevents" but I would still like to know what!
Admittedly repair could be a noun, but prevent most definitely is not!
The maker is Colgate so you would think they could afford to pay someone who could write correct English.
Any other odd labels about?
