pandas and punctuation.
For all of you that make fun of my constant “grammar-Nazi-like” habits, stop reading now.
The rest of you, get ready for a nerdy English teacher read.
My mom just loaned me a book entitled Eats, Shoots and Leaves: the Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation, and I am in love with the title alone.
I promise I’ll prove my point and be done.
So if a panda bear eats shoots and leaves…
Well sure, the panda has a pretty basic bear-like diet, and I’m a little bored out of my mind.
But, if a panda bear eats, shoots and leaves, well…
Let’s just ask ourselves who the victim of this unusual homicide might be. ☺
Anyhow, maybe Becky Renko will appreciate this.
