Apostrophe Madness at Fat Boy's



Yikes! @sbartholomew tweeted:
I know I shouldn't be a grammar bully, but this is apostrophe madness: http://yfrog.com/f39wroj - not even consistent!

Where does Fat Boy's go wrong? It uses apostrophes to form plural words — not all the time, mind you. Just randomly.

Quick rule: 
  • To create a plural word, just add s or es. The pizzas were delicious. The pastas came with creamy sauces.
  • Use an apostrophe to show possession. The pizza's crust was delicious. The pasta's sauce was creamy.

Correction:
  • Pizzas, BBQ Ribs, Fish & Chips, Hot Wings, Burgers, Pastas, Lasagne, Milkshakes, Nachos

  1. There will favorably be more of the concerns and objects for the students to regard about because in most of the cases these are even said to be pretty important.
