Oatmeal and apostrophes

While I occasionally make an apostrophe error, especially when doing quick and dirty things like tweeting, I am shocked at how many professed writers make apostrophe mistakes. At this one site I recently went to, I must have seen apostrophes used in vain at least 10 times in the 15 minutes I spent there. Ouch.

If you don't know when to use apostrophes, check out this hilarious chart from The Oatmeal. I'd seen it before but thanks to Amy at WildBird Magazine for bringing it to my attention again. :)

Are you an apostrophe champion or slayer?
