It's okay, Greggie. C'mon over; I'll protect you from those evil punctuation errors...


I'm convinced that bad grammar and crappy punctuation follow poor Greg Dobbs around. That's a really sad thought, because Greg Dobbs is smokin' hot, and if anything/anyone should be following him around, it should be me (and rest assured, I wouldn't let bad grammar get within a mile of him).

I certainly don't blame Dobbs for this semicolon error; it's not like he punctuated his own sentence when he was being interviewed. The writer should have known better than to use a semicolon there. A comma would have worked perfectly, but a semicolon does not work because a semicolon needs to have an independent clause on either side of it...and that's not what's going on here.

I'm posting a picture of Dobbs below because I need something to cheer me up after having to witness this semicolon abuse. Sigh.
