*That* would be a perfect example for some kids I know. Unfortunately they wouldn't get it the 'comma', 'coma' either...

Oh good lord-I thought the part about watching grandpa doing it with another man was bad, but then I saw the comma part...lol

Truth said...

Someone please translate that into a form that makes sense. I still don't get it.

Mr.Mischief said...

Without a comma, it makes it sound like he has to watch his grandpa "fuckin a man"-he was actually trying to say "Fucking A, man..."...in the second part, the guy suggested a comma, and the original poster thought the second guy wished the grandpa was in a COMA.

thank god for @Mr. Mischief b/c i had no idea what he was trying to say, either! clearly, fluency in native speakers is becoming an issue. i mean, this isn't just a literacy problem anymore ~ people are forgetting their frigging language. it's funny in a "wow, that's terribly sad" kind of way.

A good book about this very problem is called "Eats Shoots & leaves"...I've seen it at the bookstores, and it illustrates punctuation problems.
