Well since his offspring with his daughter may have serious medical issues, it's a good thing they live right next door where they can be carefully monitored

Reminds me of the old joke:

What's that on the road a HEAD or What's that on the road ahead?

At least he doesn't smoke. That's really gross.

Ms. Donna said...

Um Hmmmm. Tell that to J (Journalism) schools who teach the comma is an outmoded punctuation mark.

Clearly, his wife is a little too supportive and he's a little too independent.

This sounds like the Biblical story of Lot, with the alcohol, the daughters, and the wife who's a pillar of support.

I think he's out standing in his field, or left field, maybe, baby.

Speak, friend, and enter.

Speak 'friend', and enter.

Commas and other punctuation are important. [Insert media snark.]

I see this kind of crap every single day. EVERY DAY.

The latest to drive me (further) insane is people who use "myself" as a primary pronoun, instead of "me" or "I."

Yesterday I was presented with:

"My boss is showing myself and another new hire around the office. Myself and the other new hire just started last week."

I wish I could find the person who sent that in, because I would have responded, "Myself needs to learn the English language."

Incest! A new game brought to you by Waddingtons!

@ Moose:

No, the correct response would have been, "Yourself needs to learn the English language."

Incest, a game the whole family can play.

This comma problem happens all the time when the ER enters someone's diagnosis. My personal favorite was "Can't eat diarrhea." Yeah, me either, but I don't go to the ER for it...
