       It appears to be an oblique reference to some element of popular culture, based on an aggregation of search engine results using permutations of the word salad as arguments. However, apart from that, it's incomprehensible.

       //I can't be the only one here who has no idea at all what [meggabrain] is on about.//   

       Boy George has a song called "Karma Chameleon" featuring the line "Karma, karma, karma, karma, karma chameleon" as the chorus.   

       In this posting we've seen the word "karma" replaced with a comma.   

       It's worth noting that it's received 3 up-votes.   

       Hope I've been of some service.

       Indeed you have, and you are worthy of recognition for your public-spirited efforts, if not actually deserving of thanks.   

       The posting is thereby rendered a little less opaque, but not much. Are you able to explain the significance of "karma chameleon" ? That would be helpful. We understand that a chameleon is an automimetic predatory poikilothermic reptile with distinctive independent optical motor control, and 'karma' is a philosophical concept from Indian and Asian belief systems, a sort of spiritual scorekeeping. Quite what the juxtaposition of the two concepts should convey remains unclear.   

       Is it trying to put forward the proposition that lizards can have reincarnated souls ?

       Thanks, [doc], now everything makes sense. Your ,nt was most helpful. I must have head my head up my : or something.

       Nnnnnnnnnnnno.
doctorremulac3, Aug 24 2017
  

       isn't it quite obvious, given that karma is the mechanism by one turns either into a roach or a tree in the next life? One must also note Boy George's somewhat more fluid than average gender identity. Hope that helps.

       So, the taxi is handy for when you need to come and go?   

       I swear, sometimes it seems like everyday is like survival.

       I'd suggest that every day isn't like survival, it is survival, until the day you die. Then it isn't.   

       It'd be a more abbreviated song if it were titled Karma lion, although it would have lost a lot of the context as to why karma and lion are enjoined wordily like that.

       // is survival, until the day you die. //   

       Even if you're part of the Union ?

       Misuse of punctuation is OK by me...this post caused me to think... that a Karma Chameleon is someone who thinks they could change their being so as to avoid the Karma they should be getting, therefore avoiding Karma is the purpose of changing into something else. The broken typewriter is not of any relevance here as it seems to be making commas just fine.

       // this post caused me to think //   

       There's a first time for everything. Well done, keep it up.
8th of 7, Aug 25 2017
  

       Anyway, apart from putting the "pun" in "punctuation", thus idea is just a specialisation of an existing idea, namely, rebus.
pertinax, Aug 26 2017
  

       //automimetic predatory poikilothermic reptile with distinctive independent optical motor control, and 'karma' is a philosophical concept from Indian and Asian belief systems//   

       Well obviously the emphasis is on 'chameleon' and the ability to change ones karma to become a safer driver and not to run over previous dogmas. I hate it when that happens.   

       And now lets investigate other semantically challenged pop song trivia by twisting again like there is no last summer or indeed friction. "Let's twist again like we're on the moon!"
