    Motivational message for a football team (original BBC sport news article amidst BBC Sport - FA Cup third round review: Man Utd out in weekend of upsets)- aside from the stylistically moot "hopefully", I think I counted 7 strikes (not all punctuation), about 1 every 5 words- but every time I read it I felt my IQ fall further.

    When I'd get European work colleagues apologising for the standard of their English language I'd say "don't worry about it, wait until you meet the natives".
