FAMW: National Punctuation Day

Every now and then, we here at mwbh come across certain astute individuals who express dismay over the misuse of punctuation marks, most notably the one featured here. (Go ahead, click on it. You know you want to.) Well, they're (as opposed to "their") in luck, as today is “National Punctuation Day.”

Be advised that this day has its (as opposed to "it's") own newsletter, as well as an official song, available in both blues and hip-hop remix.

But wait, there's (as opposed to "theirs") more. Doug Savage proposes new and exciting possibilities for punctuation, which are sure to come up against the 140-character limitations of Twitter. In the very near future, people who have nothing to say, will be able to say nothing and still call attention to themselves. Andy Warhol was right after all, you know?

So it goes for this week's Friday Afternoon Moment of Whimsy.
