Did you ever read or see the book titled Eats, Shoots and Leaves? Sort of like my post.
I LOVE that book! It is a great one for teaching kids punctuation.
I love the comic! We haven't even put a tree up. Partly because we don't have the room, partly because we can't afford a real one (have a tiny fake one that has permanent decorations--ugly as sin, but James likes it--but I think it is in the back of a closet we can't get to right now), but the main reason is that our cats (around 9 or 10 months old) are into everything and they get very wild every night, tearing through the house like maniacs! It sounds like a buffalo stampede every night!
