Dear John:
I want a man who knows what love is all about. You are generous, kind, thoughtful. People who are not like you admit to being useless and inferior. You have ruined me for other men. I yearn for you. I have no feelings whatsoever when we're apart. I can be forever happy - will you let me be yours?
Gloria

Lynne Truss: This is a clean version of a nice joke about a panda that goes into a restaurant and orders a sandwich. And he orders a sandwich and eats a sandwich and then just as he’s about to go, he produces a gun. And he fires the gun off and just as he’s going, they say, ‘Why did you do that, that’s not a very panda-like thing to do’. And he says, ‘Look at this’. And he throws down a wildlife manual, and there, badly punctuated, is his entry, which says, ‘Panda. Large black and white bear-like mammal, native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves.’
