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