Re: Internet Spelling Errors.....

I see this online, in emails, and hand written signs pretty much daily..

An F'ing apostrophe before the s on a plural word

WHERE IN THE HELL DID THAT START? I remember first seeing it on message boards but since then.. by people who don't use computers much.. etc.. WTF

I agree with you, but I was just throwing the word ain't out there to see if someone would get the joke. Growing up teachers used to say "ain't isn't in the dictionary so don't use it."

No one got it.

Again, I simply thought it funny to use a misspelled word from one of our titles. Another missed joke.

I'm batting a thousand.
