Punctuation is powerful

October 23, 2007

An oldie but a goodie…… 

An English professor wrote the words : “A woman without her man is nothing” on the chalkboard and asked his students to punctuate it correctly.

All of the males in the class wrote : “A woman, without her man, is nothing.”

All the females in the class wrote : “A woman: without her, man is nothing.”

So to conclude, punctuation is powerful ….

    Punctuation is powerful indeed. It just goes to show that things can be different from a different perspective, that is life.

    I agree, Dylan.. Such is life. 🙂
