The Apostrophe… Is it REALLY Necessary?

As some of you may know, I want to eradicate the misuse of the apostrophe.

My Hero!

Seriously, people, when did you all get so stupid? When I get an email with the subject line “Thank’s”, I want to drive to see that person and beat them with a copy of Strunk & White.

An apostrophe is used to indicate possession or use it in a contraction… NOT to make a word plural, people. Get it straight. The Oatmeal apparently feels strongly about this issue as well.

It Says It All, So I Don't Have To

And another thing, people… If you are going use a contraction for “should have” or “could have”, it is “should’ve” or “would’ve”, not this bullshit “should of” and “could of” that I have been subjected to lately. By TEACHERS.  Seriously?! YOU are teaching the youth of this country? Well, we’re just f*cking doomed, now, aren’t we?

So keep this in mind, my lovely readers…

Thank you, and good night.

    Amen. I love fake contractions. Wait.. that didn’t come out right.

    Wait, you didn’t answer the question about mocking a hick accent (youngin’)while pluralizing!?

    youngin’s (I’m thinking that’s too possessive)
    vs
    youngins (which just doesn’t seem to have the right effect)

    Damn, I need your help to be grammatically correct while emphasizing incorrect grammar!
