Eats, Shoots & Leaves - The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation - Lynne Truss

This quote was added by user411571
A panda walks into a cafe. He orders a sandwich, eats it, then draws a gun and fires two shots in the air. "Why?" asks the confused waiter, as the panda makes towards the exit. The panda produces a badly punctuated wildlife manual and tosses it over his shoulder. "I'm a panda," he says, at the door. "Look it up." The waiter turns to the relevant entry and, sure enough, finds an explanation. "Panda. Large black-and-white bear-like mammal, native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves."

You butchered this joke lmao I remember hearing this in grade school. Your version was too lengthy, and the punchline should not have any commas. Eats shoots and leaves. Ok, I am done now lololol
