The world is a bleary place these days if you're a semicolon; the majority of Americans would rather use a comma splice and form a run-on sentence. And how do you think It feels when its possessive form is so often given an unneeded apostrophe? It isn't alone, either; the local gas station is selling hot dog's. And need I mention the thousands of American families who think it's appropriate to add a possessive apostrophe to the plural form of their family surname? Oh, and don't even get me started on everyday offenses concerning your and you're.

And so my friends, I call your attention to the fact that today is National Punctuation Day. Celebrate with me!


  1. Please, please, PLEASE tell me your gas station doesn't really say "hot dog's." That is just more than I can bear...

  2.'s kind of a math punctuation error, but it drives me nuts as an engineer, and it ties in with "hot dog's". Look at the price sometime, they often advertize ".99¢" Huh - that's cheap.

  3. I love semi-colons; I use them as often as I can.
