last week’s post about the world’s most racist desk (over here) got me thinking about how rife apostrophe abuse is these days.
partly because we all smoked too much weed when we’re at school, and partly because… nope it’s mainly just because we all smoked too much weed when we were at school. it seems the apostrophe has been flummoxing people for decades.
apostrophe catastrophe is a website where people like me, who don’t get laid enough, can go to vent their frustration about the abuse of the apostrophe. nerd much?
check out some of these beauties. or rather, check out some of these beautie’s:
oh no wait, maybe that bowl actually belongs to Penny.
and again, maybe that piece of old cardboard actually belongs to Sweet Plum.
cdses, dvdses and gameses. sheesh.
he he he, maybe that sign behind it should say ‘wet floor’s’
the your, you’r, your’e, youre confusion continues. eish.
but it’s not just the apostrophe that’s getting the better of us. it seems the quotation mark gets a bit of a regular belting too. which is where this website; unnecessaryquotes.com comes in handy.
there’s something about quotation marks that are incredibly sarcastic, don’t you think?
i always imagine someone doing those immaginary rabbit ears with their fingers when they say the word that’s couched in quotation marks.
like they’re not actually all that special.
they “are”, really they “are”. exclamation mark, exclamation mark! ok, easy tiger. deep breaths.
then there’s the quotation mark missuse and overuse sitation, as per below:
ha ha ha it’s not really free.
here by “daily” i think they mean some day last week, sort of, but not really.
ok, that’s more than enough nerding for one d
ay. tomorrow more smut. have a happy Moanday.
