print $user->{'pedant'} ? << 'END_RANT'

There is no plural to "athlete's foot". It is a massive noun, like "butter" or "foo".

END_RANT : << 'END_LEVITY';

Sure, the plural of butter is "butters" as in, "there are only two butters in this basket, but five breads." So, the plural of "athlete's foot" is "athletes' foots".

And no plural for "foo"? haven't you heard of foosball?

END_LEVITY

Hell, I'm not even sure if mixing here documents into trinary tests is legal, but whatever.
