Grammar Vigilante Roams The Streets In Search Of Stray Apostrophes

A new type of superhero?  There is a man roaming the streets of Bristol England dedicated to ridding the city of grammatical errors in its shop signs.

He goes out at night with a self-styled device called the “apostrophiser” used to cover up misplaced apostrophes from street signs.  Instead of paint he uses stickers.

The man has not been identified but he told BBC in a report broadcast Monday that he doesn’t consider his alterations of the signs and store fronts to be a crime. He says the real crime is putting apostrophes in the wrong places to begin with.

This is nothing new to him.  He’s been at it for 13 years.
