A Comma Walks Into a Bar, ...

From McWSweeney's, presented without further ado, here are some bar jokes involving grammar and punctuation by Eric K. Auld:

1. A comma splice walks into a bar, it has a drink and then leaves.

2. A dangling modifier walks into a bar. After finishing a drink, the bartender asks it to leave.

3. A question mark walks into a bar?

4. Two quotation marks “walk into” a bar.

A run on sentence walks into a bar, orders a drink, the goes to the pay phone to call his wife, but a strange man answers, and thinking it is his boss calling, tells him he is late for work because his car won't start, but the boss, had it been him, would know that was a lie because he crashed the car two weeks ago and doesn't even have one now, but then he hears beer glasses clinking in the background and figures he can blackmail the boss when he's really in danger of physical harm himself for messing with the wife of the run on sentence.
