Default they got together

"The word aerobics came about when the gym instructors got together and said, "If we're going to charge $10 an hour, we can't call it jumping up and down.""

So then the word "airplane" came about when the pilots got together and said "if we're going to charge $500 a flight we can't call it "winging it."

And the doctors got together and said "If we charge 10k a day, we can't call it practicing."

Default and lo, a colon has been added

"Censor: a self-appointed snoophound who sticks his nose in other people's business."
Bennett Alfred Cerf

Perhaps there should be a colon after Censor?

gryhnd51 on November 25th, 2011
"censor" the VERB means to remove, suppress, delete, to express disapproval of. In this quote, it is NOT being used as a noun, in which case a colon would be required.

I vote for noun and a colon.

maradnu on January 29th, 2015
Having a colon is handy. I'd hate to be without one.

montyb on June 19th, 2015
Some censors are intimately acquainted with their own colons.

Roxanne on December 31st, 2015
I bet censor is a noun and the colon is missing. It sounds like Bennett Cerf's style that way, and I doubt he would have urged censoring someone, since he won a big court case against censorship (of James Joyce's Ulysses).

ERROR: Please add a colon after "Censor" per the original quote. To verify: (link)

Okay, admin. A group colonoscopy has determined that the patient needs a colon transplant.
