This sign has been posted down the street from me in Novato, California for well over a year. Every time I walk past it I want to bring some maroon paint and fix it. As an aside, I also see a trend in the use of initial capitals in ad copy such as this one. Save initial caps for titles, please!

…although one could at least make the argument that the signmaker was using the apostrophe to mark the omission of “minium”.

One day, while waiting for the crosswalk light to change, I examined the sign and noticed that it is made of vinyl lettering, so I thought I would just peel off the apostrophe. Unfortunately, the white areas are the cut-outs.

I am now thinking about resorting to grammar graffiti and printing out a little label that simply says, “This apostrophe is
unnecessary”, a la “Eats Shoots and Leaves”.

I’d have marked on it after about 6 months.
