Well, shit buckets.

When I first read this, I read "shit" as being a verb, really changed the meaning.

Isn't syntax, punctuation, and grammar fun

Eats, shoots and leaves.

Ah the perfect example of the serial comma issue, and a great read about the confusing nature of punctuation.

Eats, shoots and leaves.

for any of you who have not read the book or know the joke, here you go

A panda walks into a café. He orders a sandwich, eats it, then draws a gun and proceeds to fire it at the other patrons.

'Why?' asks the confused, surviving waiter amidst the carnage, as the panda makes towards the exit.

The panda produces a badly punctuated wildlife manual and tosses it over his shoulder.

Well, I'm a panda,' he says, at the door. 'Look it up.'

The waiter turns to the relevant entry in the manual and, sure enough, finds an explanation.

'Panda. Large black-and-white bear-like mammal, native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves.'
