English as a Second Language/Look fellows, either “it is” or “it isn’t.”


Hi Shannon,
Thanks for youe kindly helps.
Here I think something is missing in the last sentence. I thing it is somehow short. Can you please extend it for me?

That does it! It’s time to pick up my pen and write you: I’m still waiting to read an article that ain’t got a “like a” followed by an “as though” in it. Look fellows, either “it is” or “it isn’t.”

I don't know if you really need any extension in the last sentence, because it could make a good impact on the reader.  What I think you're missing is a little detail on the previous sentence (it isn't really clear what you mean by "like a" followed by an "as though").  Perhaps you can provide an example for the reader.
