See, prepositions at the ends of sentences is something that really
bugs me, probably because I know that I do it just as much as anyone
else. The most commonly abused one, or so I believe, is 'with', which
is why I used it here. On a mostly unrelated note, dammar, gammer,
gamma, hammer, clamour, glamour, mamma, crammer, shammer, stammer,
yammer, windjammer, sledgehammer, enamour, programmer, Alabama and
yellowhammer are all the words in the English language that rhyme with
grammar. I think.
