Punctuation makes a difference


One example of the need for a comma, APA rules be damned.

From this week's "BYU-Idaho Scroll" (student newspaper):

IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY SUPER POWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

"It would be multiplicity because then I could be in class, at FHE, out saving the world, sleeping and [going] out with five different guys...all at the same time."

Maybe she really means sleeping with guys. Well, at least she has a hobby. Better than nitpicky punctuation, Liz. Have you considered her hobby? Hmm?

I also think it's funny that even when the punctuation is corrected, she's STILL a hussy!
