Does Your Dad Rock?

The third Sunday in June is called Father's Day, but if you're talking about several dads, leave out that apostrophe. Newbury Comics screwed this up in their e-newsletter.

Also, are they saying that the gifts are for rockin' dads or that the gifts themselves rock? If it's the former, the e-mail should say "gifts for dads who rock." It annoys me no end when speakers and writers refer to people using the pronoun that.

Well, at least their taste in music is better than their grammar!

That's true. And they must be psychic because they know what my dad listens to. Newbury Comics is a great store, but I have to call attention to any and all punctuation errors.
