I read a funny little story in a local “digest” from Maine (my family has a summer house there). The local publications have lots of funny little stories, so expect more like this. Anyway, here it is…
An English teacher wrote a sentence on the chalkboard:
A woman without her man is nothing.
He asked his students to punctuate it properly. All of the boys wrote:
A woman, without her man, is nothing.
All of the girls wrote:
A woman: without her, man is nothing.
Punctuation bends comprehension. 🙂
Thanks to Uncle Andy’s Digest of Lewiston and Auburn, Maine for bringing this wonderful story to us!
