Eternal Ridicule

I feel slightly guilty posting today's apostrophe catastrophe because it is a photo of someone's gravestone. But really, if you are going to carve something in stone, you should really proofread it first.

The Bette Midler quote uses "your" instead of "you're," and it should have a question mark at the end.

Cathy, who submitted this catastrophe, came up with the "eternal ridicule" headline, and her parents, Rose and Doug, took the photo while they were on a vacation in Vermont. So, I'm just the messenger here.

Thanks, Cathy, Rose, and Doug!

Maybe they had to pay per character and were trying to get out of some money loss :P
