It'd be less stupid than the religion discussions here, though. Guaranteed.

Why? There's absolutely nothing wrong with it.

I like how the comma is properly placed inside the quotes.


Actually, shouldn't it be a ; instead of a , ? Or am I wrong? I could be... I'm bad about punctuation sometimes.

Absolutely not. A semicolon (;) is used for separating linked but discrete elements in a sentence, or linking to a related but still discrete topic; however, it isn't always necessarily clear what the direct connection between the first and second sentences is. It's true that you can use the semicolon in many varied ways; but, on the other hand, it's often misused. Think of it as a bigger pause in the flow of the sentence than a comma, but not as brutal a halt as the colon (:). Sort of like , ; : .
