At the Fairway, the Tomme de Savoie looked good, but I was distracted by this sign with its random various, inexplicable odd, capricious arbitrary employment of the comma.

  1. *Puts on proofreader cape* Add an -ly to beautiful and a hyphen to gray-brown and the commas can remain as is. But why go to all that trouble to enhance the qualities of the part that is inedible? Awkward phrasing. My rule of writing is to say as much as possible with as few words as possible.
