Crayola Crayon Catastrophe

Lisa spotted this apostrophe catastrophe in the elevator of the Crayola factory in Easton, Pennsylvania:

Luckily, seeing the word your's at the factory didn't ruin the tour for Lisa and her daughter. Lisa said the factory was tons of fun! Fun with a backwards n, apparently.

Thanks, Lisa!

What's your take on the use of the phrase Tips & How-To's? Would you keep the apostrophe s there? (There's been a bit of a debate among cubicles where I work.) Thanks,

I would not include an apostrophe there. Apostrophes can be used to make single letters plural (e.g., p's and q's), but not for words.

Do you like Ps and Qs?

That orange thing in the middle looks like a cigarette!

Wow Lisa you have a good eye...good call on the your's catch...but the comment about the backward n is a little insane...I believe that's called having fun with type and design! ;)
