The End of the World As We Know it

And so one of the last bastion of civilization falls to the barbarians:

From the Daily Mail:

Birmingham City Council has dropped possessive apostrophes from its road and street signs altogether – so St Paul’s Square becomes St Pauls, for example.

I very, very much want to join the Appostraphe Protection Soceity’s militant wing and launch a guerilla campaign.

    1) Tim wants to join a society with the word ‘protection’ in its title? I’m shocked!

    2) I think knowing how to spell correctly would be a prerequisite for joining the Apostrophe Protection Society.

  2. Tim Says:

    Not at all. Spelling and grammar are two very distinct things.

  3. Nolan Says:

    Permanent markers at the ready.

  4. MDMConnell Says:

    …and I feel fine!!!

  5. Natalie Says:

    Whilst distinct, without the correct usage of both spelling and grammar, you do not seem intelligent or indeed competent.

  6. JaketheMuss Says:

    My dear Natalie, Tim could have perfect spelling and grammar comprehension and still not seem intelligent or indeed competent.

  7. Tim Says:

    Oh sod off, the two of you :-p
