4 thoughts on “Dole backs down on bananas

  1. Great banana info but laced with a bunch of apostrophes that don’t even look like bananas so someone should bin them: my rule for that thing is “if in doubt, leave it out”.

  2. Yes, sorry Frog, but the apostrophes stick out and spoil the effect. Good news re the bananas though.

  3. Perhaps I’m old fashioned but in my youth I was taught that inverted commas, as used by Mojo, serve to indicate a highly questionable, contentious, or false claim which Dole’s usage certainly is. Also used to indicate a referenced word as I do in the next paragraph.

    Furthermore, the apostrophe is a single elevated comma which indicates either the possessive “of” i.e. belonging to, or, alternatively it indicates an omitted letter.
