About Writing: Less Is Fewer

Bit bored today, but I have a phrase stuck in my head:

A nice easy way to remember when to use less, and when to use fewer.

Less is used when referring to something that cannot be counted, or does not have a plural. Fewer is used when referring to things in the plural. Or deliberately do it wrong to annoy people.

Or do it right.

But that’s fewer fun.
