Punctuation Is Powerful

The Power of punctuation

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 😉

    I have a book called Eats Shoots and Leaves. It has a picture of a panda bear on it and it is a book about punctuation. You can take the title both ways. Eats, shoots, and leaves, or Eats shoots and leaves. I have not read it yet, but after reading your post I will have to pull it off my shelf soon and add it to my read next pile. This is a good post, and every blogger should know how to use proper punctuation.
