Punctuation is crucial

An English professor wrote the words: 'A woman without her man is nothing' on the blackboard 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.'

  1. Good one!
    I also like "Let's eat Grandma" or "Let's eat, Grandma".

  2. That's a good one. Did you read Eats, Shoots and Leaves? A brilliant book.
