    iI you're wondering whether or not an apostrophe goes there...

    ... chances are, it doesn't.

    As with helium, apostrophe supplies are getting low. Be stingy with them, people!

    Perhaps, that microdot is kicking in.
    Above, they're used to separate thoughts, and increase impact. Without, most would write run-on sentences.

    Fear not the evil apostrophe, the grammer nazi's may have an eye on you...

    So is the apostrophe considered one of the noble punctuation marks?

    Apostrophes, commas, microdots, whatever; I say throw them all in there and let the grammar nazis sort them out.





    Is anyone giving odds on how many posts it'll take before "there, their, they're" and "to, too, two" get dragged into this?
    I'm enjoying my childhood way too much to ever give it up.

    Punctuation saves lives!

    For example...

    "Let's eat grandma!" Vs. "Let's eat, grandma!"

    Hey y'all, I'm checking. Y'all aren't sweatin' the use of an apostrophe, are you? It's really nothing to get your panties in a wad over. Then again, it's up to you.

    As the keyboard gets smaller, my typing in these small spaces with a couple of fingers gets worse. Punctuation is usually the first to go. Thank goodness for autocorrect because it can change the whole meaning of a sentence

    Dear girls, we hate periods too. Sincerely Commas

    Grammar is the difference between helping your Uncle Jack off a horse, and helping your uncle jack off a horse.

    Tis also the difference between knowing your sh!t, and knowing you're sh!t

    ^ lol no comma could have fixed that sentence. Reordering or breaking the list into new sentences would have. But, I would suggest it was perfectly written to brighten anyone's day.
