Incorrect use of a semicolon (the most abused
punctuation mark in Usenet). There needs to be
independent clauses on both sides of the semicolon.
A comma or hyphen should be used instead.

Every lady in the land has twenty digits: On each
hand, five -- and twenty on hands and feet.
This is true -- without deceit.
