I saw this in a building at Mississippi State on my way to class. It made me giggle so much I had to stop and take a picture. I still have no idea what it was supposed to be advertising.
Love, love, love the note.
Jesse spotted this sign in Bristol, PA:
This sweatshirt has two violations. This example is all the more egregious because the event was organized by the schools.
The Hoagie Hut is a little restaurant in Malletts Bay in Colchester, VT (I do not know the origin of the name, but there is no apostrophe at all in Malletts). I had to snap this quickly, as the owners are known for their…opinionated nature and I am sure it would be their opinion that no one should be taking a photo of their storefront.

…from the book Little Einsteins Animal Alphabet that my daughter got for her birthday. This part of the book has not just one, but two apostrophe mistakes!
In Newcastle upon Tyne UK there’s a particularly egregious example of apostrophe abuse that I’ve been meaning to capture on camera for some time. Unfortunately, it’s in a rather unsavoury part of the city and not somewhere it’s particularly advisable to start waving a digital camera around (especially if it entails explaining why you’re taking a photo of someone’s business).
Rather than taking the picture himself, Adam points us all to the helpful folks at Google Maps, where the sign is visible via Street View:
It appears that the accent mark slid off the E in CAFÉ and ended up as an apostrophe.
