Hilarious confusion in life without punctuations.

You will all agree that proper punctuation in every sentence matters a lot. But, have you ever imagined how hilarious confusion in our life would be without proper punctuations.

Yes, ofcourse, it won’t always be hilarious, punctuations also have the potential to be tragic.

I mean what if you said: “I like cooking dogs and kids”.
Instead of “I like cooking, dogs and kids”. ( Yup just a single comma did it all).

Now, let’s see some examples on how hilarious the confusion in our life would be without punctuations.

1. How a single comma can save lives.

Hilarious one: Time to eat children.

Correct one: Time to eat, children.

How a comma can save lives.

2. Hyphens matters.

Hilarious one: Hot water bottle.

Correct one: Hot-water bottle

3. Apostrophe can make you dinner.

Hilarious one: Eat. You’re dinner.

Correct one: Eat your dinner.

4. Semicolons can save your love.

Hilarious one: I’m sorry I love you.

Correct one: I’m sorry; I love you.

use of semicolons

5. A full stop at the wrong time might lead you to embarrassment.

Hilarious one: I don’t think. I’m funny.

Correct one: I don’t think I’m funny.

Never misuse full stop.

So, those were some hilarious examples on how confusing our life would be without punctuations. Hope you enjoyed reading them.

Also, do tell me your favourite one. I would love to hear about it.

Bye bye till the next time we meet. Till then stay safe, stay happy and ofcourse stay positive.

Haha, I love these! I think there’s a book out there that covers something like this calls “eats, shoots and leaves” and it’s actually about pandas or something along those lines. Who would have guessed – punctuation could save lives. This was fun – thanks for sharing.

I liked this post because I’ve seen quite a few of these kinds of mistakes in advertisements (you’d think they’d get the stuff proofread).
I used to teach English and for one assignment the students had to write about the simplification of legal language. They learnt the word ‘discourse’ in class so naturally a lot of the students wanted to use it in their writing. However, a lot of them confused the words ‘discourse’ and ‘intercourse’. It was hilarious to read things like, “Communities should be able to partake in legal intercourse.”

I’m also not a native English speaker, so I understand the struggles. What is your mother-tongue?

Really funny examples — it shows how important punctuation can be! I have a favourite example but it’s a rude one so I won’t add it here, but it also highlights how important commas are, haha!
