This Makes Me Grumpy

Sleepy must have proofread this sign at Disney World.

But it makes me grumpy. Grammar is nothing to sneeze at.

Thanks to Rae for sending in this apostrophe catastrophe from the new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train ride. Being stuck in a mine filled with bad punctuation is my worst nightmare.

And this is why the younger generations care less and less about grammar as well..these grammar mishaps with things that are being targeted AT THEM..

I agree with Chris. For a company that is one of the most famous in the world, there shouldn't be any grammar mistakes in anything that they do. I know they have quite the team with extreme accreditation, so how do they miss something so simple?

Clearly it should have read "Seven Dwarve's Mine Train."

The sign is incorrect but there's been a massive misconception here. "Dwarves" was coined by Tolkien, but the correct term is dwarf - pluralised to dwarf's (not "dwarves"! Unless we're talking about characters in The Lord of the Rings). In this case, the "Mine Train" is owned by more than one dwarf so should be "Dwarfs'".
