Poorly Punctuated Prostitution Posters

If you walk along the Las Vegas Strip, you'll be subjected to a barrage of ads for strippers, masseuses, and escorts. They say Vegas is more family-friendly these days, but don't let your kids look down as you're walking on Las Vegas Blvd. because there's essentially free porn lying everywhere. I'm not offended by the X-rated cards and fliers that are strewn on the sidewalk, but I was appalled by the semicolon on this advertisement:

Besides being in a cab with a driver who had never heard of Elvis, seeing a drunk dude in New York New York get knocked out by security, and watching a giant-breasted chick in stripper heels fall on her butt outside the Mirage, this semi-colon was the most shocking part of my stay in Sin City.

oh my goodness, that's terrible!! Larry... *tsk tsk*

Wow, really? Knocked out? That IS bad.

As for the semi-colon, I am inclined to give Larry points for placement, and will charitably chalk the error up to a pinkie-slip.

The guy was fighting back, so the security guards tackled and chocked him.

It could have been a pinky slip, but Larry should have noticed and fixed his error.

Proper punctuation holds a very significant place in the English language, so much so that a holiday was founded in 2004 to honor it. Ever heard about the National Day of Punctuation? Every 24th of September, businesses, media organizations, and schools across the United States celebrate the event to remind people of the importance of using punctuation marks properly.
