Baking Our Own Pies and Committing Our Own Apostrophe Catastrophes

Grocery stores and apostrophe catastrophes go hand in hand. In fact, the errant apostrophe is sometimes called the greengrocer's apostrophe. So I wasn't surprised to receive an e-mail from Keegan in Lexington, KY, with this photo from a Kroger supermarket attached:

Mmm... pie. I need a snack.

Thanks, Keegan!
