The Importance of Punctuation

I'm sure you've probably heard of the book by Lynne Truss called Eats, Shoots and Leaves in which she talks about the importance of punctuation and bemoans its declining importance in the US and the United Kingdom. This week, I noticed a sign that would seem to indicate that things are not really improving.I think this might be far more funny in New York or somwhere else with a large Jewish population, but it was still funny (and deeply disturbing) to me. If you aren't up on your Jewish vocabulary, click here for a definition of "bris."

I know just where that stand is, and that sign has driven me crazy for ages!!! I'm glad I'm not the only one. :-)

I'm thinking they're selling some kind of kosher pintos, correctamundo? You must have snapped this down Tejas way. Although I don't think anyone would DARE paint their establishment hot pink in Abilene, now would they? PS: Eats, Shoots and Leaves is my grammar bible...
