After you have read this, there should be no further need to ask when or why to use one.

That...was one of the best instructional pages I've ever read: it was educational and I'm still laughing (OMG, that's a colon I used, though! ;))

Avoid the links at the bottom of the page though.

I did not look at them when I first ran across the page, as I found the page humorous enough to be memorable, which is a great way to learn. I looked at it again last night and noticed the links at the bottom, several of which are not work friendly in any way, shape, or form.

Definitely worth saving. I'll have to remember to review this before I do heavy revisions in the coming future.

The inclusion of Zombie Squirrels would have made it better thought right?
