Grocers Unclear on the Concept

The Modulator has the story. I'm still laughing.

Shouldn't that be " Grocer's "?

"Grocer is" or "Grocer" possessive? I don't see it.

I took the structure of that phrase from a recurring cartoon theme in Mr. Boffo.

Better luck next time, aon. :-)

No worries though, there will plenty of mistakes to catch in the future. I'm full of them!

That is fantastic. I'd heard about it but hadn't seen it yet.

That grocer needs to run a Lean Six Sigma event on labeling!

On the other hand the label is really nicely done.

Ah, I wasn't trying to imply that you had made a mistake. I was referring to the 'Greengrocer's apostrophe'.

I saw a cringe-worthy misuse of the English language, complete with one of those the other day at a gas station. "Drive off's is illegal". Makes me wonder why we have schools.

aon, you silly! We have schools to make sure our students have self esteeem and learn about how the world got the way it is today through oppression by white males!

Oh, and to learn about the rainforest, too. Evey year, no matter what, we need to learn about the rainforest.

Seriously, though, our family is a big supporter of wild spaces, but we joke about the annual homage to the rainforest in the kids' textbooks.
