In the 19th Century, Perhaps

I think this facebook flair is trying to say that the UK is #1, but, ironically, the bad punctuation kind of makes the statement more true.


Sorry, British friends! You know I love you! Hey, now that Amy Winehouse is reportedly divorcing Blake Fielder-Civil, perhaps the British Empire can rise again. Pirates seem to be making a comeback.

Thanks to my friend Jodi for sending this apostrophe catastrophe my way. Cheers, luv!

Update: People in the comment section have informed me that this is an intentional apostrophe catastrophe. Sorry!

Maybe, they meant to say "We were #1."

No apostrophe necessary.

Facebook applications are an absolute treasure trove for bad punctuation seekers.
