Recently, I walked into a church classroom to find a list of the 10 Commandments on the board. The first line read “No other God’s.”
So while you take a moment to appreciate the need for precise punctuation, enjoy this delightful five-minute repartee between Dean Martin and Victor Borge singing with Phonetic Punctuation. The video is a bit blurry as it must have been clipped from an old video tape or similar. But hilarious nonetheless!
