Vonnegut: Semicolons are Transvestite Hermaphrodites…

Actually, this is from a wonderful article about Kurt Vonnegut and the shape of stories from Brain Pickings: 

In which Maria Popova quotes Kurt Vonnegut on semi-colons:

First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you’ve been to college.

I love it!
