    The Grammar Thread

    I remember this exercise from school that demonstrated the importance of punctuation. Punctuate the following (note that some words may require an initial capital but to show them here would over-simplify the exercise). "that that is is that that is not is not is that it it is"

    Feeling religious today?

    Once more, defeat snatched from the jaws of victory. I suppose this means Susie, the prophesying pig, will become next Sunday's roast. I'll bet she didn't see that coming!

    Clear instructions from China

    One of my favourites was a business sign in Hong Kong advertising 'The Wilful Shipping Co.' (Motto: "We don't care where you want your goods shipped. We'll send them where we want them to go.") Oh yes, and the "Agro Bank" in KL. (Just don't ask for an overdraft.) Pete
