I saw this at the grocery store this morning. I like Newman's Own products, and I respect the brand and its philosophy. But there's something a little creepy about this label:
The woman's hands engulfing Newman's face look long and emaciated, and the arms that are reaching up from off-panel appear unnaturally thin, as well. And what's up with those gigantic green and white rings? Any way you dice it, the composition is on the disturbing side.

All I want for Christmas is correct -- or at least unambiguous -- punctuation usage.
Much thanks to Nikki Palermo, who found this posted on the inside of the door of the only bathroom at a veterinary clinic she was working at.

I discovered these things at the store today:
They look good, but what really caught my attention was the name: OMG's. Is there the legitimate need for the apostrophe? Is OMG a person or entity to where these are his/her/its Chocolaty Clusters, and thus, the possessive 's is necessary? Or, if OMG stands for "oh my god," which I would assume it does, then might an OMG be something so good that it makes you say "Oh my god," and thus, an OMG is synonymous with a Chocolaty Cluster? And wouldn't that suggest redundancy? And if so, wouldn't a plural s be more appropriate here? And if this is the case, wouldn't the apostrophe be just another example of grammatical superfluity (as in the case with "the 1980's")? The company that makes these is called OMG's Candy, so that's no help.
Am I spending too much time thinking about this matter?
