Here is the story of a college student who lost a bet and got a tattoo. I pass this along just because of the apostrophe. I know there are some Red Pen Police / Grammar Snobs around WordPress.com that care about this stuff. I presume the y’all will find the placement of the apostrophe humorous.
I could say thank goodness it is a Texas A&M fan and not an Alabama fan. But honestly, excluding Vanderbilt, what SEC school doesn’t have a student that would make a similar mistake? We are good at football, not punctuation.
Actually, Ole Miss and Missouri students probably wouldn’t do this. So I will correct my earlier statement and say this could easily happen at 11 of the SEC’s 14 schools.
Question: What would you do if you had a drunk one night stand with this guy and saw his tattoo in the morning? How would you react?
