I am currently reading Eats, Shoots & Leaves by Lynne Truss, a book on the history and (would you believe it?) humor of punctuation. If seeing a sign with "BOB,S PETS" on it makes you twitch, this is definitely the book for you. If seeing such a sign doesn't make you twitch, you should read this book so that it WILL. :)

It's making me more aware of bad punctuation: jcobleigh and I just bought an ice-cream maker as a wedding present for some friends of ours. On four of the six faces of the box, it said, in great big letters, "Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker!" Odd, since the rest of the text on the box seemed correctly punctuated. Given the context, you can figure out what they meant to say. However, this is not so easy to puzzle out at first glance. :)
