Prepostrophes: A Series

Across the road from our house is a big cheerful pub. You might think that this is a good thing, but it is the pub equivalent of blue neons under your car. It does a particularly good line in appallingly punctuated chalkboards. See if you can spot them all…

Special points for successfully converting memory into a plural, but still adding an apostrophe:
And my personal favourite:
too many to list

  1. Don’t forget that that pub is the “Fag and Firebucket”, yet most of the boards outside proclaim “Fig and Firebucket”. I notice it every time I go past because yes, I truly am that sad.

  2. Oooh, sorry, um, if you want to change the name of the pub, or delete it, I’ll just say “they can’t even spell their own name consistently”.

  3. Ah, so you did spot that I’d carefully edited out the pub name for the sake of anonymity?!

  5. No need to delete. I’ve changed the names to protect the innocent.
