    Question No more no less... does it make sense?

    Does the expression no more no less make sense? For example:

    It's easy, do that, just that, no more no less!

    People usually punctuate it: after all those commas I wouldn't just add another:

    It's easy, do that, just that; no more, no less!
    or
    It's easy, do that, just that - no more, no less!

    Another way to break it up would be to use a conjunction: 'no more and no less'. If you don't separate the two in some way, then the reader or listener will expect different syntax - like 'no more Mr Nice Guy' or 'no more school'.
