Joke, memetics and semiotics

This is nonly a joke, but one can see how different people, in this case men and women, are equipped with different memes, which emerges when the semiotics of there communication are
loooked into a bit deeplier. The same words, just only different punctuuation, which means different signs, and we get different memes.


Wo Man

An English teacher wrote this phrase on the board and asked her students to properly punctuate it: "Woman without her man is nothing."

MEN WROTE: Woman, without her man, is nothing.

WOMEN WROTE: Woman! Without her, man is nothing.
