I've become such a sign snob. I admit it. I swear there's a repressed Catholic school ruler-snapping nun buried in my DNA somewhere. Really people, learn how to use pronouns in regular speech. Check out Mary Norris's Between You And Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen if you don't believe my rants.

 

Remember: apostrophes show possession or missing letters, they don't make words plural. Why don't sign makers employ proofreaders? Anybody know?

 

More signs from my travels.

 

Tell me again what a taco owns?

 

Oh, and sometimes translation is the issue. See bottom right.

 

Then, there's the question of a good night's sleep - to a T.

 

But, the best, in my opinion, is this two-fer.
