Question Something that has been sticking in the back of my mind...

Lol, to each his own! *Wait, is it "to each's own". Or is it "To each his own" lol? I mean, because if you say to each's own...how would that include a woman? Wouldn't it be, "To each her own"? There is no "s" after "her" lol. "To each hers own"? Nope, doesn't work, lol.

Quark it's an old saying. Actually I have heard it said as "To each, their own."

Now that makes more sense, lol. I remember the Green Goblin saying it in Spider-Man, however. And ever since then it stuck in my mind. I'm going to have to watch it in closed caption next time, lol.

It's definitely "to each his own"... which can become "to each her own" or "each their own", etc.
