Also called: the importance of commas. Especially when the original attempt at humour falls flat.
I read this to Lydia this morning, from Gary Parker's Exploring the World Around You:
"Consumers include plant eaters or herbivores....An organism that eats anything, such as a teenager, is an omnivore."
Lydia, understandably, looked at me in horror.
Even with the commas, that's a bit creepy, don't you think?
