The Economist on the new book “Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation”:

http://www.economist.co.uk/world/europe/displayStory.cfm?story_id=2269440



A panda walks into a café. He orders a sandwich, eats it, draws a gun and fires. As he is on his way out, the waiter asks him why. The panda hands him a badly punctuated wildlife manual. The waiter reads, “Panda: Large black-and-white bear-like mammal, native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves.”
