Punctuation is powerful!

An English professor wrote the words: “A woman without her man is nothing” on the chalkboard and asked his student to punctuate it correctly.

The Third Biggest Lie In The World

Ann Landers challenged her readers to come up with the world’s third-biggest lie — right after “The check is in the mail” and “I’m from the government and I’m here to help you.” Here is a sampling from the thousands she received:

– “It’s a good thing you came in today. We only have two more in
stock.”

– “Five pounds is nothing on a person of your height.”

– “You made it yourself? I never would have guessed.”

– “Of course I’ll respect you in the morning.”

– “You don’t look a day over 40.”

– “Dad, I need to move out of the dorm into an apartment of my own so I can have some peace and quiet when I study.”

– “It’s delicious, but I can’t eat another bite.”

– “The new ownership won’t affect you. The company will remain the same.”

– “Your hair looks just fine.”

– “Put away the map. I know exactly how to get there.”

– “You don’t need it in writing. You have my personal guarantee.”

OK, actually the above is a joke, but I wonder if you could suggest any more good lies?
