Great Moments in Class Relations

A scene from Yankee Stadium:

The combination of food and security collided inside the Stadium Wednesday night. This had nothing to do with high-profile broadcasters or players’ wives. This was a rebellion of the rich. In that expensive area downstairs – the one with the empty seats – there are seemingly more waiters and waitresses, serving free food, than there are patrons.

On Wednesday, it got so crazy that the fan-elite started tossing ice cream sandwiches over the moat to peasants sitting in the $400 “cheap” seats. This did not sit well with Toastie security forces, who began scolding their most prized customers. The lecture from security prompted a guy in the rich seats to say: “I paid for this food, I can do with it what I want!”

Hey, after we gave all those bankers $12 trillion of our tax dollars, we should be grateful that they’re giving us a little bit back.

Seriously, though, wouldn’t it be nice if there were a modern day Robin Hood?

If this is what it takes to keep the streak going, bring the cream pies as well

You know what I enjoy about this? The guy in the rich seats saying “I paid for this food, I can do with it what I want!” Way to not end your sentence with a preposition, rich guy; impressive grammar skills.

Will “let them eat ice cream sandwiches” ring through the centuries as the battle cry of the average fan revolt.

Maybe they should just put up a sign that says, “Do not feed the peasants”.

Last I checked, “it” was not a preposition.

I believe “to” would be though.

Actually, in the obvious case of rewording the sentence to end in “to”, one would be implying the verb “to do”, e.g., “I can do with it what I want to [do].” In that context the word “to” is a grammatical particle, not a preposition.  The preposition here is “with”, and there’s really no way to place it at the end the sentence and still expect anyone to understand your intent.  While it’s certainly an annoying habit to constantly place one’s objects before the verb that act on them, it doesn’t really demonstrate grammatical prowess to do so at the… Read more »
