    Re: What does this mean "No more couch Potatoes!"

    It means exactly what it said in post #5.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Your teacher did not say "No more lazy people" is incorrect. Your teacher said "There is no lazy man anymore" is incorrect, and in that she is indisputably right.
