And then there was Winston . . .

. . . trying to sound tough, as if it were defying grammatical norms with: "Winston tastes good like a cigarette should."

Some people argued against "like" and for "as" - the former supposedly being ungrammatical, the latter correct: "Winston tastes good as a cigarette should.".

The answering retort became: "What do you want, good grammar or good taste?"

As if one had to choose . . .
