A Grammar Pedant's Corporate Crustiness O' the Day



November 29, 2007 – Comments (4)

Dear Land O' Lakes,


As an enthusiastic user of your Mini Moo's product, I am writing to ask that you please remove immediately the superfluous apostrophe from the product's name. As any reasonably studious 5th grader could tell you, an apostrophe is used to indicate ownership or missing letters -- in the case of a contraction, like the O' in your brand name, which stands for "of" -- not to indicate a plural, not even at the end of an acronym (no matter what those miscreants at the New York Times do).


If you persist in calling these products Mini Moo's, then please change your brand name to Land O' Lake's. If you are going to be wrong, you may a's well be con'si'stently wrong.




S'eth Jay'son
