The panda and the comma Oct 22, 2012

"A panda walks into a café. He orders a sandwich, eats it, then draws a gun and proceeds to fire it at the other patrons.
"Why?" asks the confused, surviving waiter amidst the carnage, as the panda makes towards the exit. The panda produces a badly punctuated wildlife manual and tosses it over his shoulder.
"Well, I'm a panda," he says, at the door. "Look it up."
The waiter turns to the relevant entry in the manual and, sure enough, finds an explanation. "Panda. Large black-and-white bear-like mammal, native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves.""

Störfaktor Komma Nov 6, 2012

Nachdem die Gastronomie sich als Kommahasser geoutet hat will ich mal auch mein Outing als genereller Zeichensetzungshasser einbringen Dafür gibt es zahlreiche handfeste Gründe schließlich nehmen Komma Punkt usw viel Platz ein obwohl sie gar nicht unbedingt notwendig sind Gerade im Deutschen sorgt die Großschreibung bereits für eine ausreichende Textgliederung

Um es also handfest auf den Punkt zu bringen Die Übersetzungsbranche sollte sich dem generellen Trend zur Einsparung überflüssiger Kosten anpassen und fortan eine 5 bis 6 %ige Senkung bei den Übersetzungspreisen durch Fortfall der Interpunktion fördern Hierdurch würden nicht nur unproduktive Unternehmensausgaben auf ihr nötiges Mindestmaß beschränkt was unsere Industrie wieder wettbewerbsfähig machen könnte sondern obendrein auch noch die Umwelt geschont Wegfall zB von Papier Tinteverbrauch Festplattenspeicherplatz

Wohlgemerkt es geht nicht um das einzelne individuelle Komma auf der Restaurantkarte denn das war erst ein bescheidener Anfang Wenn man diesen Ansatz volkswirtschaftlich betrachtet können wir mit diesem neuartigen Ansatz als Textprofis sogar einen nicht unerheblichen Beitrag zur Lösung der Weltwirtschaftskrise leisten
