I can form only one conclusion from this.  The pepperoni is on pizza rats slice was made of people and now they've developed a taste for human flesh.  We're doomed.

At this point I have to conclude the mods and subs are just trolling us language sensitive people.  It's getting ridiculous, once per day at least.

*class'

But seriously, when did people start using a possessive apostrophe to indicate plural?
It seems like I just started seeing this a couple years ago and now every idiot is doing it all over the place.

And this isn't even a case of the "grocer's apostrophe" - apparently failmitter thought "get's" is some kind of verb contraction, like "it's" or "let's".

It's not news, it's the New York Post.

Are you telling me that there are rats in NYC?  And those rats may get annoyed enough to actually bite a person?!

This is some serious, serious news.

Must be Williamsburg rats. They won't touch it if it isn't sliced. They bring their own cuttlery, and beard-bib.

Is that one of the do's and don'ts of punctuation? Will it prevent people from getting A's ?

In those two situations, some writers will use 's for plural. The alternative could be confusing.

That NY Post article was shorter than a carnie midget. There was barely anything to read.
 
2017-04-17 10:45:56 AM  
Here, I'll post the whole "article" for people too lazy to click-

A rogue rodent allegedly noshed on a stunned subway rider's finger in Greenwich Village Saturday, sending him to the hospital, officials said.
The victim asked a station agent for help, claiming the animal bit his pinky at 14th Street.
"A mouse bite me. I need hospital," the man said.


Somebody actually greened this trifling shiat for the front page?
 
2017-04-17 11:23:37 AM  
At least that subway rodent isn't a pedophile.

When your as look like us, you may have issues with the dos and don'ts.

Sure, that's not possibly even a tiny bit confusing.

"Do's" is not a word. "A's" is possessive. You're only confused if you're expecting sub-average grammar. You're making tv show alien names, K'oj.

Some style manuals will let you use an apostrophe after single lower-case letters to make them plural (a's). But the same manuals expect you to primarily capitalize the single letter (As) and avoid the apostrophe. Remember that style manuals are for newspapers, not for grammar lessons, they're just guides. A good writer will revise for clarity or when unsure, not invent new grammar.

Why's everyone hating on the rat - we don't know what this guy's pinky smelled like?  Ever had a stinky pinky?
