How can punctuation be the subject of our Friday Funny?
First of all, I have to confess that I suck rocks when it comes to punctuation. I try, honestly I do. I've read Strunk and White's. I have a BA in Communications (lots of writing in those classes).
In fact, my super-cool-agent-dude recently sent me my manuscript back with the note somewhere along the lines of, "I took the time to copy edit this for you. Please work off this copy from now on."
Thanks, Steven! And what is the proof of his coolness? He didn't say things like learn how to use an apostrophe, why don't you? or Man, why'd I sign a writer with such lousy skills? Nope. He could have said either of those, but he didn't. And that's a pretty cool thing.
Anyway - on with the funny!!
Punctuation Parable -- why it matters.
I want a man who knows what love is all about. You are generous, kind, thoughtful. People who are not like you admit to being useless and inferior.You have ruined me for other men. I yearn for you. I have no feelings whatsoever when we're apart. I can be forever happy - will you let me be yours?

So, I have recommitted to being better at punctuation. Because, apparently, it does matter.
Have a great weekend all!
