Revisionist History

I love it when readers send in a story along with their submissions. JJG reported that the employees at the gas station where he found today's apostrophe catastrophe claimed that they meant "pizza's" as "pizza is."

I'm not a mindreader, but I find that unlikely. Good try, though! And it's awesome that JJG called them out on it.

Thanks, JJG!

Did JJG get a pizza?

And also. Is it acceptable
to use pizza's as a contraction
as in Pizza's Here!!!!!!!!

I'm very very confused now.

Love the site by the way. I was going to send in a picture
but I thought something horrible might happen to me,
so I decided not to.

Yes, you could say "Pizza's here!" but I don't think that's what this store is trying to say.

What horrible thing do you think might happen to you??
