[Classic] Dave Barry

“ASK MR. LANGUAGE PERSON

Q. When’s it okay to say ‘between you and I’?

A. It is correct in the following instance: ‘Well, just between you and I, the cosmetic surgeon took enough cellulite out of her upper arms to raft down the Colorado River on.'”

[And, OMG, he also ended the sentence with a  preposition!]
