    I came across this in another forum where someone started out objecting to the grocer's apostrophe, and calling for making apostrophe misuse a hanging offense. Seemed a bit extreme...

    Then someone linked to this website (click the picture please)

    Why stop with the apostrophy?

    Lets ban all punctuation because some idiots dont know how to use it

    And while were at it lets simplify speling becos some peeple cant spel proply and it wud make lyf eeseer for them

    Proper inglish is too hard anyway lets all just right how ppl rite on there fones and dont worrie about misteaks.
