I went to a minor league baseball game last night, and it turned out to be Princess Night! They had various princesses wandering around the stadium, fireworks, and even an apostrophe catastrophe on the sign advertising tiaras. I made my fiancé buy me one anyway, and then he wore it for half the night. Par for the course.

This morning, I heard on the radio that this new movie with Mark Wahlberg about the marathon bombing needs extras, so I decided to check out the website. My dad was an extra in Love Story in the '70s and still talks about the fact that he got a free lunch out of it.
Despite the apostrophe catastrophe on the website (see the left side of the photo below) and the fact that this might give me PTSD (I lived a couple of blocks away from the bombers at the time and also worked at a high school that was a couple of blocks away from where the second bomber was captured in a boat), I think I'm going to sign up!
This could be my chance to be famous for something other than pointing out punctuation errors.

Sometimes, caring about punctuation can be a burden, but this shop in the UK clearly doesn't have that problem.
It appears that they noticed their mistake and tried to fix it to no avail.
Thanks to Russell for submitting this apostrophe catastrophe.

Sometimes you can hit the jackpot on thriftshop bargains, and I think these photos qualify. They provide a treasure trove of bad punctuation.
Clearly, someone had been drinking the strong stuff out of these glasses before making the signs.
Thanks to Jim for sending these in!

Joe from Saskatoon spotted this catastrophe at the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet.
He writes, "In a state where they use a pile of apostrophes, I’m pretty sure this one is still wrong."
Thanks, Joe! I hope this giant apostrophe catastrophe didn't mar your vacation.

Just because "sequoia" is the only word that contains every vowel does not mean it should be the only word that needs an apostrophe to make it plural.
Thanks to Craig for sending in this disastrous ad, which I have clearly had in my inbox for years.
