No Such Thing As Bad Publicity – Chapter 19
My recollections from the English classes in school was that there ought to be only one ‘and’ in a sentence, or a clause. Be that right or wrong, it is the rule that has been complied with hereabouts – other than that riddle.
This Firecrest van did cause me to assess whether the rule in my head had any solid basis.
I suspect that Firecrest intended to convey a message that they were experts in Fire & Gas Detection; and, Process C.C.T.V. – but to my reading they are advertising as specialists in Fire, not Fire Detection.
As for the number of ‘ands’, the internet suggests that my rule does not appear to be founded on the strongest foundations.
It is also not a rule to which Ernest Hemmingway adhered.
"I said, 'Who killed him?' and he said 'I don't know who killed him, but he's dead all right,' and it was dark and there was water standing in the street and no lights or windows broke and boats all up in the town and trees blown down and everything all blown and I got a skiff and went out and found my boat where I had her inside Mango Key and she was right only she was full of water." Ernest Hemingway, After the Storm
