The next logical step of your argument would be that every time the numeral 1 appears, the next word should have "-(s)" appended because of Inflation. After all, "Play 2 card per turn" is the strict interpretation of the effect of Inflation on Play 1.

While I agree with the specific interpretation of the card's intent  
in this case, I do not agree with the advice to "not worry about the  
strict wording".  The idea ought to be that what's written on the  
cards is all you need to know.  The "Draw 3, play 2 of them" text is  
broken when "One, Two, Five!" is in effect, and something more should  
be done about it than shrugging and saying "Well, you know what it  

If (when?) I get a deck with "One, Two, Five!" in it, I'll be marking  
up the "Draw 3, play 2 of them" card to end with something like  
"...discard what you did not play."
