What's an apostrophe?



Yaaaayyyyyyyy.

Hold the presses.

Chairman gets apostrophe in right place.

Guangzhou Sunday April 15
Unpopular professional forumite, Chairman, appears to be getting the hang of apostrophe usage.
Earlier postings from the Mao Zedong fan overused apostrophes to the extent that there was a shortage of them for the occasions where apostrophes were desperately needed.

In a recent post, on the China Daily bulletin board, Chairman apparently inserted an apostrophe in the correct place, contracting "What is" to "What's". This is uncharacteristic behaviour for Chairman, who has recently launched a new line of car entertainment systems under the S'henzhen Apo'strophe brand name..................................

Jesus had the 12 ' apostrophe 's "



Jesus has no s

so no Jesus's

just Jesus' cross
