Five Catastrophes for the Price of One!

Pete in Exeter, England, sent in this multi-faceted catastrophe.

This shop sells a wide variety of products but keeps making the same punctuation error. Regardless, it looks like a fascinating place, and I kind of want to go there. Workwear and clothing to wear for a hen night? Maybe it is owned by The Village People.

Thanks, Pete!

Multiple Comma Catastrophe

This shop, near Shrewsbury, England, tried to commit apostrophe catastrophes but wound up with comma catastrophes instead.

Some people in the Apostrophe Catastrophes Facebook group are calling this one of the worst signs they have ever seen.

Thanks to Ian for sending in this instant classic!

Victoria's Secret Catastrophe

Lynette sent in this shocking apostrophe catastrophe from Victoria's Secret's website.

Victoria, here's a secret for you: adding an apostrophe does not make a word plural. And, furthermore, the plural of "body" is "bodies." With the profits you make from your $50 bras, you might want to consider hiring a proofreader.

Proper punctuation is sexy.

Thanks, Lynette!
