I hope this is not a repost!

"A kindergarten class had a homework assignment to find out about something exciting and relate it to the class the next day. The first little boy called upon, walked up to the front of the class, and with a piece of chalk, made a small white dot on the blackboard, then sat back down. Puzzled, the teacher asked him just what it was.

"It's a period," said the little boy.

"Well, I can see that." she said, "but what is so exciting about a period?"

"Danged if I know," said the little boy, "but this morning my sister was missing one, Dad had a heart attack, Mom fainted, and the man next door shot himself."

Giggle!

Reminds me of an old COBOL programmer joke...

The programming language COBOL was written by a female. You miss one period and all hell breaks loose!

For the young pups: The language constructs for COBOL are called "sentences". Instead of having an "end if" to close an "if", you use a "." period. You can have several nested "if" statements and they can all be closed by one period. So if you forget the closing period, everything else becomes part of the "if", until the next period the compiler finds.
