The funny thing about punctuation

For all those authors, students, journalists, academics and conscientious tweeters who find themselves fretting over proper punctuation, take a moment to watch Victor Borge’s classic comedy sketch.

Borge was a fascinating man. Born in Denmark in 1909 to musician parents, he found fame as an accomplished pianist who also performed stand-up routines during concerts. He arrived in the United States at the age of 31 without a word of English and learned the language by watching movies.

His ‘Phonetic Punctuation’ routine is simply brilliant and is guaranteed to make you smile, period!
