Comma controversy

Thanks to the Internet, American's are finally learning that you're supposed to put the comma outside the quotation marks.

Take that, AP Stylebook!

Update: You can have my semicolon when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.


  1. That's quite lovely. Now, do you think we could discuss that apostrophe in "American's"? Lol!

  2. Punctuation goes inside quotation marks. That is the Law as handed down by our Honored Dead.

    On top of Tradition, I've read British newspaper and own books published in the United Kingdom and the punctuation is always inside the quotation marks.

    Everyone claims that about the UK, but my eyes haven't confirmed it.
