One Of My Bugbears...

I get irritated by the misuse of apostrophies. I used to feel like a dreadful old pedant for making such a big thing of it... and then the book "Eats, Shoots and Leaves" hit the bestseller list.

However, I was delighted to find a young man having a rant on You Tube about much the same thing...

Twitch of the mantilla to Mark.

Really. He's got natural comic timing.

haha! He was funny!

But he makes a good point! Barely anyone can use an apostrophe properly any more!
