Editor’s Corner: A tiny tidbit for Friday

Hello! Today’s tiny tidbit is from But Can I Start a Sentence with “But”? Advice from the Chicago Manual of Style Q&A. Like the signs below (from our May contest), this Q&A made me laugh.

Question: Is there an acceptable way to form the possessive of words such as Macy’s and Sotheby’s? Sometimes rewording to avoid the possessive results in less felicitous writing.

Answer: Less felicitous than Sotheby’s’s? I don’t think so.

And here are some more photos from our May contest:

Happy Friday!
