The Perfect Valentine's Day Gift

This is a rough weekend for a lot of people, especially punctuation sticklers. With Valentine's Day and Presidents' Day upon us, we're inundated with misplaced apostrophes.

This sparkly gift I received is appropriate for both holidays because it represents the love I feel for our president. Sadly, it commits two apostrophe catastrophes.


Stick Em' only works as a contraction if you're talking about a skinny dude named Emile. And, according to most style guides, MP3s shouldn't have an apostrophe in it either.

Happy Valentine's Day, blog readers! I love you!

It's also pretty funky that the "p" in "Mp3's" isn't capitalized.
