Sir Orang-Outang

Even misplaced commas can have a disastrous effect.
I am an executor of a will and yesterday the executors were told they must "go to the local branch [of a bank] together, with a copy of the will." As the executors live several hundred miles apart it was fortunate we asked how we were supposed to do this before we tried and were told that we should actually "go to the local branch, together with a copy of the will..."

This is awesome. I cracked up at The English Predicate and had to take a moment.
