Fun Friday


A small lesson on the importance of punctuation. As a group on Facebook says: "Let's eat Grandma" or "Let's eat, Grandma": Punctuation Saves Lives."

Punctuation Parable

Dear John,

I want a man who knows what love is all about. You are generous, kind, thoughtful. People who are not like you admit to being useless and inferior.
You have ruined me for other men. I yearn for you. I have no feelings whatsoever when we're apart. I can be forever happy - will you let me be yours?

Gloria

  1. I've seen a variation on this before. It so clearly illustrates the importance of good punctuation. It also cracks me up.

  2. Karen; A reminder with a giggle is always a healthy combination.

  3. That's a really good example. I love it.

    It reminds me of the book, "Eats, shoots and leaves."

  6. Ah, the power of a comma! I remember posting this one on my blog a couple of years ago. Still funny. Another one to play with: "A woman without her man is nothing."
