Grammar question  
Sign: "Shoplifters will be smote by the Gods and then turned over to the police."

Should that be "...will be smitten..."?

I'm with 'smitten' too, though I have cheeky leanings toward 'smaught' :P

I cannot find it anywhere, but I have vague memories of a James Thurber essay including a sentence to the effect of "Smite not the smitten, lest thee thyself be smooted."

Smooted! I love it!
