  2. Love it! Particularly like this one http://bit.ly/d7Pdij

    What amazes me is how many of these are printed professionally. My grandfather was a printer and he saw part of his role to assist his customers. I don’t believe he would ever have printed something so wrong.

    I can’t see it getting any better any time soo’n!

  3. Thank you, Tony. And hats off to John Richards at the Apostrophe Protection Society:

  4. This is cute! Thanks for sharing, made me laugh.

  5. I bet this comment really wind’s you up then, Don!

    Sorry, couldn’t resist.

  6. I’m a punctuation and grammar nazi, but this made me chuckle 😉

  7. Rampant apostrophes is also one of my pet peeve’s (!).
    There’s an excellent little guide for businesses available from Emphasis at http://www.writing-skills.com that’s worth a subtle email or two to any offenders.

  8. Possibly the top blog that I read this year
