Interesting how the absence of a comma can change the meaning of a
phrase. The previous post, reading "Aren't you happy, guys?" clearly
asks if we are happy, while this post asks if we are "happy guys."
Likewise, to use a Simpsons reference*, "Kill Bart," a command for
someone to kill Bart becomes "Kill, Bart," a command for Bart to kill
someone, when a comma is added. Isn't that fascinating.
*This particular reference is from the episode where Bart and Lisa join
opposing Hockey teams.
