Reading a paper about the significance, variety, and use of food in Anglo-Saxon England (though I believe in credit where do, I am not citing this as I'm about to be unnecessarily snarky), this sentence appeared:

"(T)he majority of Anglo-Saxons would have partaken in products from breweries, including children."

Of course, we all know what is MEANT here.  But we also know this is a gate, and it's wide open, and there are a bunch of jokes over there rushing through the open gate to escape smarty-pants writers (but archaeological amateurs) like me.

These jokes wouldn't be possible if the sentence said, "The majority of Anglo-Saxons, including children, would have ..." etc.

Hey, but feel free to "comment" your joke below!
