Default Punctuation Lesson

An English professor wrote the words "A woman without her man is nothing" on the blackboard and directed the students to punctuate it correctly.


The men wrote:

"A woman, without her man, is nothing."


The women wrote:

"A woman: Without her, man is nothing."

A Panda walks into a restaurant, orders and eats a steak, then pulls out a gun and shoots the nearest waiter. He then stands up and walks out. The manager of the restaurant runs out after him, and sees him getting into a taxi. As the taxi speeds off, the Panda shouts out the window: "Look it up in the dictionary!"
So the manager goes back into the restaurant and finds a dictionary in the office. Under the entry for Panda, he reads:

Eats shoots and leaves.
