    Ok, well it made me giggle. On a profile from another site (I'm preserving anonymity):

    "Young bottom here. I like hung, dominant tops..especially daddy's."




    Does daddy know about this? icon_eek.gificon_razz.gificon_rolleyes.gif

    Punctuate:

    The editor where the author had had had had had had had had had had the author's approval

    I think this works:
    The editor, where the author had "had had had," had "had had." "Had had" had the author's approval.

    Meaning: The author provided the word "had" three times in a row, when really it should have been used only twice. The editor corrected this, and the author approved.

    Pretty sure "Helping your uncle Jack, off his horse" is an incorrect comma use.

    You're probably right but I posted that for humor, not for grammatical accuracy.

    It would actually be: "Helping your uncle, Jack, off his horse" if we wanted to keep the humour.

    Then again, the sentence would still be clean if we removed all commas and said: "Helping your uncle Jack off his horse". The only possible confusion would come if it were spoken.
