Saw this at Home Depot and couldn’t resist sending along the pic.

I really like this lawn decor otherwise, but alas, they were all wrong and I’ll be damned if I put this violation of the English language in my yard.

    I suppose that ’til would have made sense as an abbreviation of until (although till would have been better), but what on earth does that mean?

    I think I’d hurl.

    Hi I have just come across your site and it is a great collection of apostrophe misuse. I know that Lynne Truss makes reference to it but here in Dublin there was a shop called Bob,s Pets. An entirely different class of error?
