Sunday Funnies ~ Bowling

Please take the short poll: are your ears pierced?

Piraro, Jartos, Mueller, Pope, Streeter, and Coverly, all having fun with bowling.

Stupid grammar note: the final clause seems like it's part of the list.  I'm a firm believe of putting a comma at the end of a list (before the final "and") but then something like my opening sentence comes up... odd.

The classic example of why to have a comma before the and comes in the form of the (possibly apocryphal)  book dedication:

"I'd like to thank my parents, Ayn Rand and God."

By the way, there are far more cartoons/jokes about golf than any other sport.

Anyway, cartoon time:

That's me

Love this one!


  1. what about semicolons? I have ben thinking of having my ears pierced, I probably will over the next month or so.

  2. I loved the bowling cartoons, especially The Paranoids and the Really Bad Bowler.

    I was taught in elementary school to insert a comma before the final "and" in a list. Almost everyone seems to leave that last comma out these days so I do, too, but it doesn't seem quite right to me. Of course, just because it's common usage doesn't make it right. Don't even get me started on the increasingly common practice of pronouncing often as "of-ten."

    I enjoyed the book dedication.


My day is brighter when I hear from my friends!
