 It's a common knowledge that punctuation can change the meaning of a sentence.  This can be best illustrated by the 'famous' sentence:
  Woman without her man is nothing.
Woman, without her man, is nothing.
Woman - without her, man is nothing.

Britain's The Magazine and the Society for Editors and Proofreaders had a contest to write a thank you letter that can have two different meanings if you use the same words but change the punctuation.
Here are the five of the best:
Dear Santa, You really made my year!  When I heard you had fallen from your sleigh, I was so sad.  To see such wonderful gifts lined up under my Christmas tree, my eyes lit up.  When I unwrapped your gifts I knew that the spirit of Christmas was still alive.  It was terrible hearing about your accident.  The best piece of news all year is your safe return.  Things yet to come, you say!  Christmas is a time to love and share, I disagree with Scrooges.  Everywhere Christmas is slowly fading.  Thanks for making it so fantastic.

Dear Santa, You really made my year when I heard you had fallen from your sleigh!  I was so sad to see such wonderful gifts lined up under my Christmas tree.  My eyes lit up when I unwrapped your gifts.  I knew the spirit of Christmas was still alive - it was terrible.  Hearing about your accident?  The best piece of news all year.  Is your safe return a sign of things yet to come?  You say Christmas is a time to love and share, I disagree.  With Scrooges everywhere, Christmas is slowly fading.  Thanks for making it so.  Fantastic.
