We construct apartment buildings and meaningless phrase's!

The trouble is, all the other nurses voted for Barack Obama.

No in is or out is? Hard to argue with on the basis I have no idea what this could even mean.

I'm sorry to say I went to school with this offender. I'm more hurt than angry.

From the window of a real estate agent in San Diego. 'Example is', indeed!

From the window of a hardware store in the Bronx. Note the interesting use of periods. If I had the nerve, I would have gone inside and asked for a "shovel is and a spreader is, please". Obviously, I don't.

I'm trying to picture what was going through the author's mind as they wrote this:

"To 'wok' something is a verb, right? So, if I cook something in a wok, then I must have woked it. Crap - that sort of means I roused it from sleep. Erm, 'wok'd'. That's it."

Taken on Mass Ave, Cambridge. I thought this was supposed to be a clever town, what with all those fancy university's and whatnot.

I went into this pub (in Aylesbury, UK - home of fighting, car-theft and shoplifting) and noticed that they did, in fact, have 2 pool tables.  Both were in the rear of the building. When I pointed out that their sign indicated that their sole pool table was in the rear of the building, a most lively exchange followed. Earlier today, the nurse said I should be allowed home soon.

Who is this particular youth? Seems strange that the esteemed Ithaca Journal would write such a piece about one person's psyche.
I'm considering starting a sub-blog (if there's such a thing) devoted to it's / its errors

Ok, I'm going to try to be kind about this. This is from a very well-meaning, but sadly misguided agent while travelling in the UK. Heathrow Airport, Terminal 4, to be exact. We do need Apostrophe OFFENCES, not just random pictures of the word Apostrophe. However, that weird thing above the 'o' could be a bizarre, mutant punctuation mark. I just don't know, anymore.

Well, I suppose this could just about be valid if there is only one package for Guest, but I'm not convinced

This just in, from our agent in the United States of England. Seen in The Bluff Inn near Hayle, Cornwall. Your welcome!

A personal favourite of mine. There's something more profoundly satisfying about a professionally produced apostrophe error than a hastily hand-written blunder. Really.

From Greek Peak ski resort in upstate New York. Home of skier's, snowboarder's and other thing's ending in s

This just in, from one of our "officer's" in TX. Seen at a Freebird World Burrito restaurant in Round Rock. A beautiful creation.

Don't keep me in suspense. Your 9" tomato pie is what?

I tried really hard to make this work on some weird grammatical level, but I just couldn't. A crime like this is made all the more grave by the fact that these were stuck on all the copies of this particular edition of the USA TODAY newspaper. Fortunately, their readership has dropped in recent times, so only 7 people got to see this filth.

Me: "Is Sport here?"
Shop assistant: "What?"

Case closed. Guilty of construction of an invalid plural noun. Adjourned for sentencing.

Offence committed in San Diego

I love a panini as much as the next man. I have even been known to have two paninis in one sitting. I don't know if I have ever eaten "panini's" though. Taken on the upper east side of NYC. Guy in the reflection got all funny with me for taking a photo of "his" building.
OK, if I'm in a REALLY forgiving mood, I can understand how some people get flustered by plural nouns and feel the urge to throw in an apostrophe for good measure. Example - "Candy's" as shown above. But "Glasse's"?

Taken in otherwise beautiful downtown San Diego, CA.

By emitting the apostrophe, its like its a hole different word!

This just in, from one of our officer's in TX

Seen on the door of a Farm to Market grocery store, South Congress Ave in Austin. I did not enter (what's going on in the grocery store that photos aren't allowed?)

Mission statement

People of the interweb, your/you're language is disintegrating, but there's/theirs still time to do something about it. Who's/whose got the courage to fight back before it's/its too/to late? The Apostrophe Police, that's who.  On this blog, we'll be posting crimes against that most vulnerable of punctuation marks, the common apostrophe and will punish offenders however we see fit. Scared? You should be.....

When I asked Henry "Your fruit is what?" he told me to get off his land. Not really, of course.
