Punctuation Is Hot!

While I was waiting at the deli counter of my local FoodMaster, I noticed some jars of badly punctuated salsa.

Trying to give Better Than Freds the benefit of the doubt, I went to its web site to investigate the missing apostrophe. Alas, the story of the company confirms that the name is referring to only one Fred.

In search of catastrophe-free salsa, I headed down to Old El Paso.

But Thick N' Chunky —- like the Cask 'n Flagon, Sweet 'N Low, and Guns N' Roses —- is missing an apostrophe, too.

My quest for grammatically correct condiments continues.

Better than Fred's is my FAVORITE salsa! Funny that I never noticed the apostrophe catastrophe. They also sell excellent tortilla chips in the shape of moose ears. You'd forgive the punctuation error if you tasted the salsa. :)

I wonder what makes one person choose 'n and another person choose n'...

I wonder that, too. This error is everywhere!
