Rhymes with Orange

Here’s a little trip through the mind of MRP. I get the joke, but I’m not sure I agree. At first, my thought was that “Do more with less” by itself is correct and not the same as “Do more with less people,” as implied here. That would be “Do more with fewer people.” But now I’m wondering if you could (more correctly) say “Do more with fewer,” even though that sounds odd. What do folks think?

Hat tip to Rhymes with Orange and the Grammarphile.
