Punctuation Is Powerful
The image we published last Saturday was quite popular, so I decided to run another one this Saturday.
The theme is the same: punctuation.
For those who can’t see the image, here’s what it says:
An English professor wrote the words:
“A woman without her man is nothing”
on the chalkboard he asked the students to punctuate it correctly.
All of the males in the class wrote:
“A woman, without her man, is nothing.”
All of the females in the class wrote:
“A woman: without her, man is nothing.”
Punctuation is powerful.
I also wanted to thank all the readers who sent ideas and images. If you want to send one simply email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
