Today’s apostrophe catastrophe comes to us from my parents, who are both authors and who are both awesome, so I’m taking an opportunity to shamelessly promote them.
My mom writes, “We, Becky’s parents, were horrified (and delighted at the same time) to encounter an apostrophe catastrophe on this road sign on a rural road in Oregon. Several miles down the road, we saw that the punctuation lapse was not made by the restaurant itself but by whatever state department is in charge of road signs. However, we still consider the spelling of Becky as Beckie to be a minor catastrophe.”
