I knew someone many moons ago who suggested that such a punctuated name (ending in s and trying, vaguely, falsely to show possession) should be pronounced as though it had another s. Hmmm. Why go through all those shenanigans to do something so simple to begin with? No. No. At least a couple dozen times, no.
Dear Chris, it should have been “Chris’s Cakery” — and there’s still time for repentance before the day of grammatical judgment.
A few other errant signs have made their way into my files. (OK, I’ve been unable to resist snapping pics. It’s only embarrassing to do such things in public places for a moment. Then I realize that those who don’t get why I’m taking the pic ought to be more embarrassed than I am, anyway!) Here’s another, and then I’ll call it quits for the day. I’m not sure how broad the intended audience is here, but they can’t have meant this literally….
Here are some other ones. More signs coming in this series!
