Biting the Hand that Pours Drinks for Me

I play on a softball team that's sponsored by a bar. The staff treats us really well, and we get free drinks after games. But in the midst of our victory celebration last night (back-to-back city championships!), I had to take photos of two apostrophe catastrophes.

If you look carefully, you'll also notice that someone changed one of the special's from "chicken parm" to "chicken porn." Clever!

And then there's the men's room sign....

Writing "mens" seems to be a very common error. Men is already plural!

I apologize for the poor quality of the second photo. That one was taken after the bartender poured us a second round of victory shots.

The 2nd photo reminds me of 1 of my favorite overheard, fictitious comments: "Dahling, I think you've had too much to drink. You look blurry."

Mens is latin. It means mind.
