One of these cans of Chef Boyardee’s Mini Bites has a spelling error. Which is it?
The answer: both of them. Ah, a trick question, you say? Sort of. Apostrophes after initialisms and acronyms (ABCs and 123s) are incorrect, unless you follow the New York Times‘ guidebook of punctuation. Who listens to them?
Apostrophes, however, do belong after single letters (mind your P’s and Q’s).
In short, label designers are not necessarily masters of punctuation.
