BBC newsreader kidnapped by Phillip Garrido
Forced to bear children...
BBC newsreader Jonathan Charles has been delivered a short, sharp and very public lesson in "importance of punctuation on the autocue and breathing":
The uploader responsible for this quite unfortunate comma failure is, according to the Telegraph, none other than the Beeb's economics and business unit supremo Jeremy Hillman.
We're delighted to see The Corporation has regained its internal sense of humour, sadly lacking since the 2006 Ozzie bin Laden video spoof outrage, which saw slapped wrists all round for a BBC London news team who recorded a version of (Is This The Way To) Amarillo? while dressed as comedy Arabs. ®
An oldie but a goodie...
An English teacher wrote on the blackboard:
A woman without her man is nothing
and asked the students to copy it down and punctuate it correctly.
All the male students wrote:
A woman, without her man, is nothing.
All the female students wrote:
A woman: without her, man is nothing.
Punctuation is powerful!
Transcripts are helpful
I've said it before on here and I'll say it again.
Not all of us can get video at work.
Please provide details of what is in the video please.
I really wonder how the deaf readers of this site put up with it either.
