I'm sorry. I wanted to let this go. But my inner language geek wouldn't let me.

The correct saying is "No ifs, ans or buts."

"an" in this context is an old word meaning, essentially, "if". It survives in modern days as a linguistic fossil in two phrases - the above, and also in the Wiccan Rede "An it harm none, do as thou wilt". It can also be seen in Shakespeare.

This has been your linguistic educational update for the day.

It depends on your definition of "Fine." Will you be alive? Probably.

I could accept that as long as I can still roll dice and move little wooden cubes around.

Very true.

But you should be saying "the ORIGINAL saying" as now the meaning has altered. As the word "an" has gone the way of "ye", the language modifies the phrases as well.

"And" is now the accepted word in the common phrase. Although tht is not what the original was.

And the Wiccan and Pagan community thanks you for an acknowledgment.

Honestly...Yuck!

If it was a single hamburger patty with some onions and garlic mixed in and covered with bacon and cheese, then sandwiched between 2 of those little personal size pizzas, this would be appetizing. I just find the ratio of beef and pizza to other ingredients way off. There's like zero bacon on there in comparison to the quantity of pizza and beef.

Alright, but I get the feeling you're going to need a long stick or something to move those cubes. You won't be doing much moving after eating this thing.

You need to start ignoring your inner language geek, Timothy. No ifs, ifs, or buts!
