    I always heard that joke as being about a koala. Eucalyptus shoots. But then, I'm an Aussie.

    The book was written by an American woman and she did tell the joke with a panda. Good to know that Aussies out by the barbie looking at Nicole Kidman-types still care about proper punctuation.

    I think I first saw the joke in a book of "Great Internet Jokes" back in the mid-90s, she didn't invent it. Very old grammar joke.

    Of course she did not invent the joke. Who said she did? She is the one who wrote an entire book of punctuation and grammar jumping off from that joke. And the book was written way before the mid-90s - I don't know, but am pretty confident that the joke, the book and many lessons of good grammar pre-date the mid-90s, and the imternet.

    This U wing bal boot (Rain / Burgundy museum calf) MTO is gaining some major traction! :)
    We have about 9 interested at this point and I have 5 votes on Dainite and 2 votes on leather sole at this point!

    Kindly send me a PM if you would like to join and which sole choice you would prefer! (single dainite vs leather sole)

    Navy calf with a black alligator strap sounds gorgeous. Depending on last and sole choices, I could very well be in on this. I'll keep lurking for details!

    Rain last, JR single leather or HAF sole

    Or if your guys like museum calf, plum museum + black alligator strap or brown museum + brown alligator strap might be nice too.

    Here is an inspiration by John Lobb
