Language Post #2: Apostrophe's'

Izzy also directed me to the Grammar Girl collection (Pritcher blogged on this yesterday), hinting that "Someone should blog on this."

While I agree that apostrophe's are way over-u'sed thing's, I fear Grammar Girlz ob'se's'sion with them lead's her a'stray a bit.

Worrisome Grammar/Construction:

Let me know which one before you serve me my food. Thank's'.
