    Fun, anytime, anywhere

    Hello!

    Consider the following sentence:

    "Fun, anytime, anywhere"

    Fun = uncountable noun.

    Is the comma usage correct?

    Best regards,
    Johnny

    Re: Comma usage

    My knee-jerk reaction is that this is not a real sentence. It is an advertising line in which we regularly play fast and loose with the rules of the language.

    I'd tend to go for periods or just a lot of white space between the three words.

    Re: Comma usage

    The phrase is not a sentence, so we can't apply rules and guidelines for placing commas to it.
