Group DescriptionFrom Dave Barry's "Tips for Writer's":
Dear Mister Language Person: What is the purpose of the apostrophe?This group documents prominently-placed and egregious punctuation mistakes. Bonus points (redeemable for nothing at all) are awarded for finding examples with unintended, hilarious meanings.
Answer: The apostrophe is used mainly in hand-lettered small business signs to alert the reader than an "S" is coming up at the end of a word, as in: WE DO NOT EXCEPT PERSONAL CHECK'S, or: NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY ITEM'S.
