“Mr. Martini” is having a special on drinks….. or so one would assume.

Wow! A whole blog. I’m always seeing apostrophe abuse. How amusing this blog is.
I wonder what the decision-making process was for the writer of this sign. Why would he use an apostrophe in one word, but not in the other.
It’s Your Damned Language
Funny, funny — I happened to do a post on NPD – National Punctuation Day and spoke about how to use the apostrophe. One of my readers directed me to your site. Yay — funny, funny.
I just stumbled upon you and I’m glad I did. I love it!!
I wonder why specials didn’t get an apostrophe? Hmmm…
Funnily enough, there’s actually a restaurant called Martini’s Bistro in my town. I’ve always assumed they knew what they were doing when they called it that, but maybe it was incorrect punctuation all along…
