You know whats funny? Your article on Sharkanski. You nailed him!!

Hopefully it will be on every kitchen in Seattle's restaurants.

The only one who shows that tool love in this town is Feit.

Hilarious, ECB. My number one grammar pet peeve, next to the superfluous e (as in Shoppe or Olde).

I'm more annoyed by improper apostrophe use. It is one of my true pet peeves (that's not "peeve's", folks).

This blog and the blog about passive aggressive notes go together like peanut butter and chocolate. Delicious.

Re: the "NO RV'S" entry :
"The really sad thing about this sign is that it's at the entrance of the parking lot for my university's main library and English department building--"

It may be annoying, but it's actually pretty common - not to mention useful - to add an inappropriate apostrophe to an all caps sentence in the case of headlines, signage, etc. for the purpose of clarity. Otherwise, drivers would wonder whether or not they are carrying any "RVS", and what to do if they are.

You want misused quotation marks (or any other punctuation)? Overused ellipses? Butchered metaphors? Look no further than the queen. Kaye, Grogan. Seriously. Do yourself a favor and read just a few columns. She's a treat.
