I’ll bet the silly cow is going  to talk  about  putting  in commas. The teacher said nothing but began to talk about  putting commas  and explained how important  they could be.  To show  what she meant  she wrote  the sentence on the blackboard. “ Tommy Andrews says the teacher is a silly cow.  The class laughed  and Tommy Andrews looked very red. “ Now “ said the teacher “ I’ll show you how important commas are “  She put  two commas  into the sentence  and it now read  “ Tommy Andrews , says the teacher ,  is a silly cow”

    There was a young lady, whose nose ,

    Was so long that it reached to her toes;

    So she hired an Old Lady ,

    Whose conduct  was steady,

    To carry that wonderful nose.



    There was a young lady of Niger

    Who smiled as she rode on a tiger

    They returned from the ride

    With the lady inside

    And the smile on the face of the tiger.
