To those who care about punctuation, a sentence such as “Thank God its Friday” (without the apostrophe) rouses feelings not only of despair but of violence. The confusion of the possessive “its” (no apostrophe) with the contractive “it’s” (with apostrophe) is an unequivocal signal of illiteracy and sets off a Pavlovian “kill” response in the average stickler.

Deleted lines from the Thor script #192

  • Odin:: Thor Odinson... you have betrayed the express command of your king. Through your arrogance and stupidity, you've opened these peaceful realms and innocent lives to the horror and desolation of war! You are unworthy of these realms, you're unworthy of your title, you're unworthy... of the loved ones you have betrayed!
  • Thor::
  • Odin:: But perhaps I'm being too harsh. You seem to be contrite, and—
  • Loki:: He also took the last white chocolate pistachio cookie.
  • Odin:: WHAT? My most favourite of all biscuits?!? Right, that's it. I now take from you your power! In the name of my father and his father before, I, Odin Allfather, cast you out!!
  • Thor:: But—!!
  • Thor:: *(gets banished)*
  • Loki:: *(discreetly brushes cookie crumbs from his mouth)*
