The notorious twelve point point pica Chicago typewriter which ‘fires’ at the rate of ten characters to the inch,

or the equally notorious ten point elite Chicago typewriter which ‘fires’ at the rate of twelve characters to the inch?

I know, it’s too late now, but I wanted to see: “… died of a self-inflicted punctuation wound.”
