If, while in conversation with friends, you are going to use the correlative conjunction ‘but’ in a sentence, it adds a touch of class to put “ah, my foes, and oh, my friends” after it.

Some examples:

– The Twins may only be one game up right now, but ah, my foes, and oh, my friends, they’re for sure going to make the play-offs.

– Sure, the common sql programmer might use an ‘inner join’ here, but ah, my foes, and oh, my friends, the ‘outer join’ will work better.

– Yes, evidently the show ‘Lost’ was a big deal, but ah, my foes, and oh, my friends, I didn’t watch a single minute of it so I can’t bring myself to care.

Any other helpful examples?
