The word you are looking for in your subject line is "sunglasses." Spelled as you have it, it means: "That which is possessed by sunglass." All the more egregious is that you have not named the item belonging to sunglass that is being worn.

I deem the sentence acceptable. I also judge it to be clever. It made me lol.

I am delighted to make you chuckle, old friend.

I deem it fairly amusing that our insulting associate is so absolutely convinced of who is behind a shared account name at any given time. Such a notion is quite misguided.

That might be the most magnificently run-on sentence I have ever waded through.

Ditto, but I can find better, and it's ABOUT run-on sentences:
Quote:

After finding that many visitors to our site look for the world's longest run-on sentence we decided to create an entry and our first step in finding the world's longest run-on sentence was to to look up the definition and found that a run-on sentence is a sentence without a punctuation marks where they should be and as a result combining what should be many sentences into one long one which we found after doing some research can be endless and has no clear cut example that we can officially call the world's longest run-on sentence and thus we do not have an answer but we must add that although this is a run-on sentence with quite a few words it is far short of run-on sentences written by people with too much time on their hand and we do not claim this to be the world's longest run-on sentence as all we are stating is that we could not officially find one.
I love it! And it's got no punctuation, which apparently is one of the pre-requisites.

Ah, but the Kliban one in the cartoon was perfectly punctuated, and WASN'T a run-on sentence, but a perfectly valid sentence that just went really long. :)

And of course, the whole point was making fun of the way English and writing are taught, putting all the emphasis on writing the sentence correctly, and completely disregarding that the sentence itself is a completely ludicrous discussion of a nonsensical conundrum.

Perhaps horribly for someone with my degree, I follow a broader definition of the run-on sentence. I believe the idea can extend to a sentence with many subjects or different thoughts expressed, which can and should be split up with certain, specific types of punctuation. A coma is punctuation, yes, but it's not punctuation that is designed to separate thoughts. A period and, in some cases, a semicolon would be the marks for that. In the comic sentence, the reference to preserving democracy in California is especially jarring. This might have been intentional, but the finishing thought had nothing to do with the opening thought.
See, I could have separated all that only with commas, but the thought would be rather run-on, and so the sentence would be venturing into the same territory by default.

Again I think that's part of the joke - that the whole thing makes no kind of sense, but it still kinda works, even when it's running off the rails and into a thousand-foot crevasse!

Oh, and a "COMA" *IS* a kind of punctuation, for a life, anyway. I think of it as more of an ellipsis, though - the life isn't necessarily over, but is trailing off, not sure what to do next...



[Yes, I'm playing. I'm sure you meant "comma".]
