Clothing for the apostrophe-impaired


Okay, call me naïve. I thought the biker types (as opposed to those of us on sport and sport touring bikes) decorated their own leather vests with patches they accumulated one by one.

Then I did a casual search for “biker leather vest” on Ebay and found tons of ready-to-wear, pre-patched vests.

They’ve even replicated the moronic punctuation that’s so common with these patches. Like this one that says, “Bad ass boy’s ride bad ass toys.” If the plural of toy doesn’t take an apostrophe, why in hell does boy?

Reminds me of a guy I saw last weekend who had a patch on the back left shoulder of his vest that proclaimed, “My other rides your wife.”
