Friday Sign of the Apocalypse: Apostrophe Catastrophe Edition

Once more, with feeling: When you're making plurals, you don't need apostrophes.

Thanks to Rachel A. for the lovely photo.

" don't need a apostrophes."

You also don't need singular articles.

This one is very common. People often don't realize that the apostrophe is used in a posessive sense. I often see mistakes like "Mother's Day", as opposed to "Mothers' Day". What's worse is when I say "I guess the day is only for one mother", nobody gets it :-(
