Read. Write. Repeat. Aspire to be a Janitor.

Stop the Cannibalism

Your grammar matters. Whether you are writing a school paper, a news article, or chatting on Facebook, if you are not careful, this can lead to the eating of another human being.

Only YOU can prevent cannibalism.

Pay attention to your punctuation. If you forget a comma, the path before you can quickly spin out of control.

Just one comma.

“Let’s eat, Grandma!” I’ve said this, you have probably said this, and it is completely innocent. Well, innocent until you accidentally forget the comma.

“Let’s eat Grandma!” Now, since you have forgotten it, instead of turkey and dressing for Thanksgiving, you’re eating your beloved grandmother.

Please stop the senseless killing and eating of precious grandmothers. It is a shame that we have come this far and have progressed as a society only to revert back to our primitive days where the neighbors would come over to share a meal of grass-fed, free range, distant relatives.

Stick to your BLTs, supreme pizzas, and couscous. Use a comma and save a life.

    After we work on grammar, maybe we can work on gratuitous use of text formatting for emphasis…

      HA! I do as well. It looks as if your poetry style calls for it, though. Cheers!
