Would Jesus Use an Apostrophe?

The other day I passed church sign that said:

Are you ready for Jesus return?

I don't think the sign had the intended affect result.* All I could think if was WPWJU (What punctuation would Jesus use)?

I wish people would learn how to use apostrophes!

* This is for you, Mermaldad! Everyone else can read the comments to see why.

Major pet peeve. Makes me want to jump out and fix it.

Mermaldad said...

Ooh, Ooh, I can't resist this one! You mean that you don't think the sign had the intended *effect* on you.

Got you on that one!

The Cat Bastet said...

Affect = influence
Effect = result

In this case I think either could apply. :)

Mermaldad said...

Well, not exactly.

Affect = v. to influence
= v. to put on a false show of
= n. emotion

Effect = v. to bring about
= n. result

OK, Mermaldad, you win. I changed it. :)
