I saw a bumper sticker today:
“Love people. Cook them healthy food.”
I immediately thought to add a single, strategically placed, period:
“Love people. Cook them. Healthy food.”
And that, my friends, is why professional writers are worthwhile investments. The ability to spot and make that tiny change to express exactly what you want to express.
But I promised a contest. Readers, find a catch phrase, song lyric, tshirt, bumper sticker, line from an ad, whatever.
Change one tiny thing. Move punctuation, swap out a homonym. Change the meaning. Be funny. Post both in the comments.
