Dan Quayle Must Have Written This Sign

Here's another one from New York:


The apostrophe catastrophe here also creates a spelling error because "potato" shouldn't have an "e" in it. This sign should also have a comma after "eggs." The guys in the background clearly had no idea why I was taking a picture of their little shop.

Actually, the plural of potato can be/is spelled with an 'e'. That's certainly how we do it in England, anyway.

We write "potatoes" here, too. I meant that "potatoe's" isn't correct. Maybe I wasn't clear. Thanks!

Eeek! They aren't even consistent in their apostrophe errors! What about the egg's?

Becky, I agree. Potato, potato's, potatoes or potatoes' could all be gramatically correct in one context or another, but never potatoe's.
