The editors at the Chicago Manual of Style — the bible of choice for word nerds — have rapier sharp wits at times. For example:

Q. Is there a period after an abbreviation of a country if it is terminating a sentence? “I went to U.K..”

A. Seriously, have you ever seen two periods in a row like that in print? If we told you to put two periods, would you do it? Would you set your hair on fire if CMOS said you should?
