All you need to know about punctuation!

Do you worry that your punctuation is not perfect

Someone just sent me this amusing piece on an email - it's all you need to know!
"We commas are nice wee friendly chaps with pointy chins. We jump into sentences to make you take a pause. Don't be putting us at the end of a sentence, mind!   Our chums the full stops have big black tummies and tell you to STOP reading for a second; they're the canny fellows ye need at the end!   Exclamation marks are usually tall thin girls who make you say OOOH AAAGH LOOK AT ME!!! We all get together and help clever people to write ikky little stories. And you know what? They could nae do it without us. Nor could they do without clever blog posts that tell them how to use us!"

Well, actually, we could, Mr Comma... but if you didn't pay attention in school, or have a few problems with the rest of it (like the difference between quotation and speech marks - quotation marks are the ones with  - oh, never mind) it doesn't matter - the proofreader will sort it all out!


  1. Hahaha I love this Terry, thanks for sharing :-)

  2. Thanks, Shelley - it made me laugh so much I had to put it in a post!

  3. Haha, brilliant!! Love it! Best giggle of the week so far :)

    1. I'm thinking of Sir Semicolon, the love child of the full stop and the comma....!
