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.

  1. Let’s put our hands together for the magnificent drummer. Any female who turns down this talented percussionist is undoubtedly mad. Give him a comma. He deserves it!


  2. I believe! I believe the comma should be made common. That recording of the Frigate bird is amazing. Thank you for sharing.


  3. The Michael Phelps record used to be held by legendary Russian gymnast Larisa Latynina, considered to be gymnastic’s first female superstar. (And, dear readers, it’s the comma after Latynina that birthed these 420 characters.)
