Having a Comma After Your Name or the Word Magnificent or Elegant Before It: Michael Phelps, Frigatebirds, and the Common Potoo. Another 9-line, 420 Character Piece.

Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian of all times,

has the sports radio guys wishing they had a comma after THEIR names.

Like “Magnificent Frigatebird” or “Elegant Trogon.”

The first name makes them standouts sight unseen!

I don’t have a comma or a “magnificent;”

I’m more like Loons and Terns with the first name of “Common”.

I mean do you marvel when you hear the name Common Potoo?

We “Commoners” need a comma.
