Thanks to Todd for taking this photo at a golf course in an undisclosed location.

Rejected Insurance Spokespeople?

Pete sent in this apostrophe catastrophe from Goathland, England:

The word "gecko" is misspelled in the hand-written sign at the bottom of this display. And on the packaging of the product itself. Thanks to Alison for pointing that out!

Thanks, Pete!

In other news, Russ sent me this apostrophe catastrophe that he spotted on Animal Planet:

Thanks, Russ!

Same Place, Two New Catastrophes

I spotted this sign in the bathroom of the bar where I saw this catastrophe a few weeks ago.

Thanks to Mickey for sending in this hilarious, albeit gross, apostrophe catastrophe.

Thanks, Nat!
