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.

I think the last one really got you! There's one group that takes up two lines - High Fullutent Sophisticated Swine. Come on - it takes more than just being High Fullutent or a Sophisticated Swine to love the Devil. You have to have both of those qualities to be truly evil.

Humble Sophisticated Swine are obviously God fearin'.

One gets the feeling that the list continues, but space was limited.

Every time I look up a phrase on Google, someone has a blog about it. But I really wasn't so surprised about the phrase "compulsive proofreader."
