Need to spice up your writing life?  How about challenging your fellow writers to a duel?

Dueling with commas

You've all seen, no doubt, that illustration that proves commas can save lives when inserted - a bit like a hospital drip, I suppose.

"Lets eat Grandpa..." "Let's eat, Grandpa."

So here's the challenge:
Make up a new example that shows the importance of commas in a dramatic fashion. Don't go googling for an answer, write yer own :)

Here's a couple:

Resting the dancer won't inspire a better performance.
Resting, the dancer won't inspire a better performance.

The army celebrates a battle, with a lot of hand-to-hand combat.
The army celebrates a battle with a lot of hand-to-hand combat.

Prize for the best; a humble comma: pick your own.

How's this for one?
