A Funny Prank

I came across something else very, very funny. It's called the ugly baby prank. I think you'll get a good laugh or two out of this...

Do you realize the power of punctuation. Just look at this example...

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 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!

Yes, indeed, punctuation is powerful. It reminds me of the power of voice inflection, or where we put our emphasis when we speak. I'll always remember the sentence used in a Dale Carnegie course to illustrate this. The sentence was:

"I never said she stole money."

It amazing that you can make that sentence have six different meanings by where you place the emphasis.

When we speak, it's not only the words we say, but it's how we say them that are important. And let's not forget the power of body language. May we always communicate with kind words and actions.

Jokes of the Day

A woman was shopping at her local supermarket where she had selected the following items: A half-gallon of 2% milk, A half carton of eggs, A quart of orange juice, A small head of romaine lettuce, A 2-pound can of coffee, And a 1-pound package of bacon.

As she was unloading her items on the conveyor belt to check out, a drunk standing behind her watched as she placed the items in front of the cashier.

While the cashier was ringing up her purchases, the drunk calmly stated, "You must be single."

The woman was a bit startled by this proclamation, but she was intrigued by the derelict's intuition, since she was indeed single. She looked at her six items on the belt and saw nothing particularly unusual about her selections that could have tipped off the drunk to her marital status.

Curiosity getting the better of her, she said "Well, you know what, you're absolutely correct. But how on earth did you know that?"

The drunk replied, "'Cause you're ugly."
