Well, at least the editors at Yahoo! Movies managed to get one possessive form right in this headline:
If this were baseball they’d be batting .500.
If you ever get stuck in a time warp in the twentieth century, be prepared! Yahoo! Style has the information you need about appropriate jewelry for the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s:
Seriously, when used with numbers, an apostrophe indicates a missing digit or two. What the heck did the writer think the apostrophes meant?
That’s quite a dress! According to Yahoo! Style, a dress was being complimentary, meaning it said something nice about an actress’s skin:
A complimentary dress could be more valuable than millions of dollars’ (with an apostrophe) worth of diamonds. If the dress merely complemented her skin, it would only make her skin look better.
Proving once again that the writers at Yahoo! Style haven’t the slightest idea when and why to use an apostrophe, this punctuation genius uses it to show a letter’s missing (I think):
I’m just not sure what letter is missing. Could that be short for pol? I’m strictly ol’ school when it comes to punctuation: Don’t use an apostrophe unless you know why you’re using it.
