This Anthropomorphizing Has Got to Stop



Frankly, I think any of us would be, under the circumstances.

If you open that door, it may notify Facility. Watch yourself.

At least they didn't try to use apostrophes. "Its' alarmed".

Apostrophe crimes in this country have got to fucking stop. I'm talking primarily about using it thus with nouns: car's, dog's.

I WILL reach a breaking point and it will be very hard to explain to a court.

Bobby is correct, of course (notice, no apostroff's). I also like the misuse of quotation marks. I drive by "Jim's" TV Repair daily. I mean, "Jim's?" At least the apostroff is correct. On the other hand, "Jim's" real name might be "Fred," in which case it might be Chuck, a triple cut-out.

Ahhhh, Fukkitt.

My absolute favourite apostocrime is the one cited in Eats Shoots and Leaves, to whit, a graffiti that read "Nigger's oout" beneath which some wag had sprayed "But he be back soon".

Sheer dtnfqba'n bliss.

Hey guys, I'm worried about the door. Has anybody even tried to calm it down?
