Yes, that’s right… they’re offering
…all sort’s of bedding, drape’s, dishe’s, toaster’s coffee pot’s, Vacuum’s, heater’s, Iron’s , blow dryer’s, curling irons. And more at unbeatable price’s.
When my dreaded Comcast bill arrived in the mail the other day, I was more appalled than usual – in glaring red ink on the envelope, an abuse of apostrophe sat right next to my name. Usually the PR people are better at catching these things, but not so at this cable company. It still pains me to look at it.

Melissa points us to this bizarre headline:
Tony writes about this pie he ordered:
When it arrived, it looked nothing like a grandma. Not even a grandma with a caramel top and custard!
Tony said it looked nothing like a grandma, but did it taste like a grandma? Any cannibals out there wish to weigh in?
This is from first-time submitter Greg, who writes:
This flyer for Canadian electronics retailer Visions … was just too good (i.e. bad) to ignore. By my count, there’s an IDEA’S, a T’WAS, some CD’S and DVD’S, and even a THRU’!
(Note: Stay tuned for more dated submissions as I work through my backlog.)
I saw this bumper sticker on a driving north on Georgia 400 today, and the first thing I did when I got home was locate it online and take a screen capture so I could share the hill-arity (sorry) with others. This site obviously believes in neither partisanship nor grammar!
Are they saying they want it to feel colder than it is in 2008? Or that they want more homes for ants? I don’t get it. And shouldn’t there be a sticker for Hillary Clinton?
Our neighborhood police department was handing out these bike lights. I counted six abuses and one typo as well as several questionable capitalizations. It appears that the copy editor gradually went insane. I also wonder about the thought process of deciding that “jogger’s,” “skier’s,” and “kid’s” deserve apostrophes but cyclists and hikers don’t.
