Welcome to the first edition of Friday Frivolity. Today, commas! Prompted by a great example:
Without further ado, and adon’t, I present: Commastrophies!
A panda enters a cafe’ . He orders a sandwich, eats it, and then pulls out a gun & starts shooting. As he gets up to leave, the waiter demands an explanation. The panda hands him a poorly punctuated wildlife guide booklet. The waiter flips to the bookmarked page and reads the description for panda. “Panda. Large black-and-white bear-like mammal, native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves.”
