That’s just a little lesson for all of you losers out there with limited vocabs and no grip on how to properly use a comma. In case you have no idea what I’m talking about, yesterday on The View, Michelle Obama said that her husband was “sweet, empathetic.” The dumbass audience and countless other couch potatoes across America heard, “sweet and pathetic.”
