August 28, 2007 - Countires

All countries run on tires, but if you tried to count them all, you would quickly run out of steam. We buy tires, change tires, kick tires, rotate tires, and recycle tires. If you laid them end to end (do tires have ends?), they'd probably roll all the way to the moon, and then back by an alternate route. On the other hand, it's easy to count all the Ballard list typos for country and countries, given that there are only two: Counrty and Countires. They swing "high" and "low," respectively, in terms of probability. OhioLINK also sports five cases of Counry and seven of Counries. (Photo from the California Waste Tire Enforcement website.)
