At first, I was wondering if this was just an ironic placement of a cute banana drawing, or if it was actually apostrophe abuse, but the more I looked at the sign the more convinced I was that I have come across yet another apostrophe-illiterate person! I just expected MORE of Trader Joe’s . . .
AA: You could also call them on the price — as listed (.19 cents), one could purchase 10 bananas for two pennies.
AA: Seems like there are plenty of extras to me…
This is a fried chicken joint in LA. I don’t understand what possesses people to complicate something so simple.
Photographed last month in a NYC diner.
Spotted on television, shaking my faith in a medium known for its intellectual rigor!
Taken at the local Walgreens in Westminster, Colorado. I saw this banner and was standing looking at it for a while, until one of the clerks asked if she could help me. I told her it looked like there were two spelling mistakes in the banner, so she brought over her manager and I explained that there is no apostrophe needed in either word. They said that no one had ever caught that before. I felt shallow and pedantic (Peter Griffin).
I saw this in a mall parking lot in Bellevue, Washington. It was unintentionally perfect, so I had to take a picture.
Saw this on a recent trip to Hell’s Kitchen (see! I used the appostrophe correctly there!)
The store has it all. Spotted in Welland, Ontario.
This sign appears every year in the window of a shop called “Car Bitz” in Keynsham, near Bristol.
I wonder if the owner is any relation to the Bra Shop owner?
