Punctuation Saves Lives

Hey everyone! I'm preparing for some family to come visit this weekend so I didn't have a time to write a huge long post. Instead you get a little writing funny. Enjoy!

The first one is what would happen if Grandma's family were zombies!

(OH funny tid bit: "Mama, if someone takes our your brain, you become a ZoOoOmBie." "Emry, What's a zombie?" "I don't know Mama, but, you have to say it ZoooOoooMmmmBiiieeee. That's correct." *chid nods knowingly*)

@Kateri Von Steal Oh my gosh that is hilarious!!

Joanne said...

lol, it's amazing what a mere comma can do.

Enjoy your family this weekend :)

Abby Fowers said...

LOL! I saw this on a blog yesterday and saved it for a post! Haha. You totally beat me to it. This is hilarious tho. Have a great weekend!

Ava Jae said...

Ha, ha, that's a classic. Just like "A panda walks into a bar and eats shoots and leaves." vs. "A panda walks into a bar and eats, shoots and leaves." :D

And who said grammar wasn't important?

I love commas, they help me to say a little more, with a little less. ;)

Jenny S. Morris said...

Have a great weekend! I am horrible with puncuation,so Grandma would probably die. LOL.

Lillie McFerrin said...

Emily R. King said...

Great example! Thanks for sharing. : )

Mark Noce said...

Lol:) I knew it was important, but this is a very serious issue when regarding the elderly;)

Donna K. Weaver said...

I get a huge kick out of some of these. And people there want to get away from punctuation. Society would fall into chaos! ;)

Aubrie said...

That is funny! Commas are one of my worst pitfalls.

Christa said...

Bahahaha! I am interested in your stance on the serial comma? I am pro- but my agent is against. Sigh.

Sarah Pearson said...

Yep, I'm one of the pro-comma brigade - too much, usually :-)

J. A. Bennett said...

@Christa Oh, I'm all for the serial comma. Did you see the thing on @E.R. King 's blog the other day? Totally explains why the serial comma rules!

Bethany C. said...

Awesome! (Grandma's are filled with sweet though, aren't they?)

ali cross said...

ROFL! That is awesome. And . . . perfect!

Hope you enjoyed the family time!

I used this for an English lesson with my students once. Some of them STILL didn't get it! *deep sigh*
