Love the blog. You should start a "sister" (ha ha unnecessary quotation marks!!) blog called The Blog of Unnecessary Apostrophe's ....
I think they got the ants under control but are worried about "ants" replacing them. If I worked there, I would definitely fear "ants" more than ants.
Liz, my ex actually made such a blog, but several other blogs exist documenting poorly used apostrophes, and I find apostrophe errors less amusing than quotation mark errors.
Thanks ants. Thants.
you might have a crossover post with the folks at Engrish.com on this one!
There are indeed already blogs out there for unnecessary apostrophes.Also, the tenant who made this sign has such neat handwriting. A shame. :P
The ants are "under control"? That's not the same as "gone." It could just mean they have calmed down and stopped carrying around things that are 10 to 50 times their body weight. But they will get all riled up again. You can't trust an ant.
Maybe they are meaning 'aunts' who have a massive sweet tooth. However then they would be looking for sugar and not 'suqer' so i'm confused again.'we' may have good days, great days but i think on THIS day they were having a 'bad' day.P>S> What's with the flower?
We "may" have good days. There is a deep meaning in this tentative hope, I think.
I want to know what's up with the random semicolon.
That whole 'we have good days, we have bad days thing gave me the screaming heebies. Could just be me.J*
Agreed, quotation mark errors are much more amusing - tons more fun to interpret - than apostrophe errors. Just one more "X" for the "ex." ;-)
So, is sugEr the same as sugAr???
"We" have good days, great days...as opposed to YOU!
Hi there, I was just wondering if you were aware that the quotation marks around "ants" was not in error. The "ants" in question are an essentially mythical creature (see this facebook page, below) and very few people genuinely believe in them.https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ants-Fact-or-fiction/29331929699
See, this is how you get ants. Do you WANT to get ants?
