Grammar Humor: Eats, Shoots and Leaves Calendar

Okay, so “grammar humor” may be an oxymoron. But for you fellow punctuation lovers, consider purchasing the 365-day Eats, Shoots & Leaves calendar by Lynne Truss, which is full of daily punctuation gems, such as:

My calendar was a gift from a co-worker who knows I love to giggle (and puzzle) over punctuation. Using the calendar is a great way to flex my grammar skills (or feel stupid) but, if nothing else, it provides a daily chuckle. Maybe it’s a nerd thing…
