A random selection of apostrophes on an Ecozone product. Who decided that Pans, Taps and Showers need apostrophes but not tiles or kettles. And what’s with the capitals?
This a Franglais example of Apostrophe Abuse.
A’La Carte . . . .
Seen in Alnwick, NE England. My wife (who is of a more charitable disposition) suggested either a) they were selling a box belonging to Clementine in which she kept her grocers or b) the apostrophe had simply fallen off the top line.
I love World Market and their Dark Chocolate Almond Laceys, but got a chuckle recently when I saw this sign.
I bought a large item at the local Kmart and had to collect it from the loading bay. That’s where I saw this sign.

You’d think that with all the money Whole Foods makes by gouging their customers, they could afford to hire a proofreader before having these signs made. This was taken in Miami at the Coral Gables location.
Seen in a Target store in Melbourne, Australia. The abuse has probably been carried through to all the stores, judging by the nature of the sign.
Bumper sticker seen in New Jersey.
