You can’t have it both ways

I always find it hilarious when someone inconsistently applies an apostrophe. Take this sign from Bearskin Neck in Rockport, Massachusetts, for example. Why did the sign maker add an apostrophe and an S to “salad” and “gyro” but not “burgers” and “corn dogs”?

Meanwhile, the apostrophe simply feels like the Psy Chic is simply piling on.
