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

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.

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?)

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