Road Trippin'

From Willits, CA: Put down the doobie and get out your dictionary. That's 'Brazilian Amethyst' and 'Moroccan Handicrafts,' people.

From Crescent City, CA: They have a pool in the door? I'd like to see that. (And the people at the Jacuzzi Company probably have mixed feelings about their brand name becoming a household name... especially when people can't spell it correctly.)

In Crescent City, California's Home Depot store: 10% off the word APPLIANCES, too.

More apostrophe abuse.

Yikes! It's going to be one of those days. I'm going to upload so many pics that I may end up captioning them all wrong. So be it. First up, more apostrophe mayhem. Some of these are really old—I've just gotten around to pulling them off my cell phone. Enjoy! (And I apologize if I've posted them before and just didn't remember.)

No explanation needed. (The apostrophe isn't needed either.)

Just say it out loud before you print it, folks, "I love my country; I hate it is leaders." Nope, doesn't work. Remove the apostrophe. Ahhh. Much better.

Whose affordable garage solution? The Bay Area's! That's right, it's possessive!

...And the coup de grace, found by Hank. OMG, I don't even know where to start. Some of my favorites are Jehovah's Witness's, Sport's Nut's, and even though they don't have misused apostrophes: Loud Mouth Women and High Fullutent. This photo alone is enough to keep the Compulsive Proofreader busy for a year.
