Saw this at Home Depot and couldn’t resist sending along the pic.
Apostrophe misuse should be reason enough to land on the naughty list.

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.

  1. 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?

  2. 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?
