Period End of Sentence


Period End of Sentence
There is a local commercial where an unsolicited douche-bag claims a product is simply the best, “Period end of sentence!”

That phrase is like chalk on the blackboard to me… Too young to know what a blackboard is? 

It is like aluminum foil on your fillings…You grew up with fluoride and don’t know that filling feeling?

Hell, I don’t have anything for young people…how about it’s like Grandma trying to RAP?

Anyway, that phrase is just extra annoying to me.

It means,

“There is nothing to discuss, I am right” “Don’t argue, it is fact” “I’m right and your opinion is worthless so just shut the f*ck up.”

When I hear someone end an opinion with “Period end of sentence” it gets my hackles up, even if I agree.  So, I argue anyway.

Por exemplum: (for example…I didn’t take three years of a dead language for nothing)

“It does not matter what you eat, the only way to lose weight is to exercise and burn more calories than you consume, period end of sentence!”

(Which BTW, there are many studies which question this long-held belief)

I respond:

“That is interesting, comma pause for dramatic effect, where do you come by that conclusion question mark asking a question.”

“It is common knowledge period.”

“Common to whom question mark indicating some doubt about your expertise.”

“Why are you talking like that?”

“You started it semi-colon compound thought and because you are an idiot exclamation point indicating voice raising period end of sentence me leaving the room and giving you the finger.”

I may need some meds, after all it is just a stupid commercial.

  1. Period is self explanatory, no need to add "end of sentence".
    I only took one term of Latin, but usually I'm able to work out what is meant when I see it in something simple such as your "por exemplum", which makes me feel a teensy bit proud of myself.

  2. Oh yes ... I remember Grandma trying to rap whilst Grandpa played on the washboard. For those youngsters who don't know, a washboard is a rectangular wooden frame in which are mounted a series of ridges or corrugations for the clothing to be rubbed upon. It is used as a musical instrument by wearing thimbles on your fingers and running them on the corrugations.

    A thimble is a little metal hat for your fingers.

    Honestly Joe ... we can't discuss anything with these young people without having to explain every other word.

    In brief, I like and agree your post.

    God bless.

  8. We can sense your outrage through body language, which needs no punctuation.

  9. Glad I missed it as I rarely watch commercials as long as my fast forward works. Got tickled at your trying to find common ground with the millennials on how much this irritates you. They probably draw equal blanks from us when they discuss the latest from 21 Savage or Offset. Who??

  10. Link exchange is nothing else however it is just placing
    the other person's website link on your page
    at suitable place and other person will also do similar for you.

  11. If you want to lose people's respect, refuse to listen to another point of view. If you listen, in the end you may disagree anyway but at least you will be educated on another point of view.

    That commercial would annoy me, also, for that very reason, he's closed minded which to me means small minded, also.
