I can't believe this country does not recognize today as a paid holiday. It's just disrespectful to every quotation mark, asterisk, em dash and type lover (moi) out there. It's a dying appreciation thanks to the advent of text messaging. I'm sure much of today's youth has no idea how to properly use a semi-colon or parenthesis beyond this - ;) Don't get me wrong. I couldn't live without text messaging either, but I still punctuate my sentences. Rant. Done.
In honor of this blessed holiday, I leave you with 37 images of the best punctuation mark ever...the ampersand (with a close second being the ellipses which you know if you follow this blog).
Happy National Punctuation Day! Be sure to celebrate responsibly.
