    The power of punctuation!

    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.”
