You know how some people dream of having their 15 minutes of fame on reality TV shows like American Idol, Survivor – or Paris Hilton’s My New BFF?

Not me. I can’t sing, I like my food processed – and Paris scares me. Instead, I dream of catching that next big grammar snafu for one of my favorite grammar blooper blogs, like The “Blog” of “Unnecessary” Quotation Marks or Apostrophe Catastrophes.

I knew I’d hit poor punctuation payola when I pulled a flyer out of a bag of groceries recently, chock full of glaring but charmingly consistent grammatical errors. I could tell the store manager was sincere in his desire to be of service, and I’ll always be grateful that he helped me score my first accepted submission to Apostrophe Catastrophes (kinda like winning a Grammy for a Grammar Geek):

If you’re going to misuse punctuation, you should always do it in all caps and the largest font possible.
