Punctuation saves lives

Consider these two sentences:

“Let’s eat Grandma!”

“Let’s eat, Grandma!”

One little comma makes a world of difference (unless of course you’re a grandma-hating cannibal).

Or here’s another one:

“The team’s franchise quarterback resigned.”

“The team’s franchise quarterback re-signed.”

One properly placed hyphen can thwart a heart attack (unless you hated him and thought he should go anyway).

Punctuation matters.
