An Anecdote on Punctuation

1 07 2007

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.”

Punctuation is powerful!! 🙂
