I don't believe anyone has been sent to jail for misuse of apostrophes

"Now, there are no laws against imprisoning apostrphes and making them look draft. Cruelty to punctuation is quite unlegistlated" (Truss 36).

 

Reading phrases like this and the relation to ciminal acts and punctuation is where I stop and find myself feeling that it is hard to take this seriously. Even if you look at the cover to this book there is a panda carrying a gun. Can you take that serious? Not me. I understand that a point was trying to be made, but I lose focusing on what the author is trying to get across and find myself saying this is rediculious.
