It’s not just because of Fup. Store Cat. Though that would be good enough. It’s stuff like this that brings joy to our little black heart:

This edition of our newsletter is sponsored by the semicolon. Friends, are you tired of all those surly periods, persistent question marks, and annoying exclamation points? Extend the life of your sentence; keep your readers hooked interminably (studies show that people stop reading more often at the end of a sentence than in the middle); win lots of literary accolades for having long, overly complicated sentences that critics just love; and best of all, exercise your right pinky while you type!

Subscribe. We’ve never steered you wrong before.
