McDonald's Drive Thru Catastrophe

Finding apostrophe catastrophes at small, local businesses (or online) is like shooting fish in a barrel. So, when I find an apostrophe catastrophe committed by a large company, especially one for which I have a bit of disdain, I get pretty excited. Walking down the street of downtown Scranton last night, I saw this giant McDonald's billboard glowing in the distance and exclaimed in delight.



I started running toward the billboard and attempted to capture it despite the poor lighting. It's not perfect, but you get the idea.

A few minutes later, fireworks started exploding in the sky. Literally. Now that's what I call an eventful Friday night.

Readers, how do you feel about spelling "through" as "thru"? It doesn't really bother me. Maybe it should, but it seems like a decent shortcut and fits the tone of fast food establishments in general. Someday, I think we'll all be using "u" for the second person, and I won't even mind that either, as long as we give credit where credit is due.

البق الدقيقي عبارة عن حشرات صغيرة يبلغ طولها حوالي 1/8 بوصة ، لكن لونها وعادات المجموعات تجعل من السهل العثور على البق الدقيقي على نباتات الحدائق. أكثر أنواع البق الدقيقي شيوعًا بيضاء ، ولها خيوط ذات مظهر شمعي تغطي أجسامها ، مما يمنحها مظهرًا غامضًا أو مشعرًا. استثناء هو الكركديه الدقيقي ، وهو وردي اللون البني وتفتقر إلى هامش.
