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 - WHAT DO U SAY?

That's good, lol. I remember we had a little war of the sexes when I was in 7th grade. The teacher asked us why we thought woman was spelled with "man" in it. One boy got up and said it was something about "wo to man" or something asinine like that. One of the girls got up and put a slash between the W and O (w/o) and said it was because woman can live without men, lol. We were only 12 and 13 so the argument was pretty funny.
