Funny, Xerius. This one is pretty cute, too. I like Oatmeal :P

How about a lesson on the oft-misused semicolon? (I love the Oatmeal, I can read him all day :D)

"Stroke them...do it!" This was in reference "my aunt's" magnificent hairy knuckles. I laughed so hard, I cried.

As a matter of fact, I laughed all the way through this semicolon lesson, by far the funniest description of the uses of the semicolon I've ever seen (and that includes my own in Raya's Dungeon ;) ). Of course, the gist of what he is saying is above reproach; no point commenting on it.

The amazing thing is how well the mind retains something that is unforgettably funny ("...dinosaurs are all about high-fives.").

Bwahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaa!
