Eats, Shoots & Leaves

A Panda walks into a cafe. He orders a sandwich, eats it, then draws a gun and fires two shots in the air.

"Why?" asks the confused waiter, as the panda makes towards the exit. The panda produces a badly punctuated wildlife manual and tosses it over his shoulder.

"I'm a panda," he says, at the door. "Look it up."

The waiter turns to thr relevant entry and, sure enough, finds an explanation.

"Panda. Large black-and-white bear-like mammal, native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves."*


For more fun with punctuation, come on over to Unicorn Bell this week for lessons, bloopers from the real world, and a quiz or two :)

  6. That's like the "let's eat grandma" comma thing that I've seen. Does give me a chuckle.
