Say “nein” to Anglo-saxon punctuation!

Seen on the way from Basel airport on 3 October 2013: “Alle Pizza’s werden geliefert.”

English grocers are notorious for serving apostrophes with everything. But now the malady has spread to a language that doesn’t even have apostrophes.

(German does use the apostrophe to show that a letter or sound has been omitted.)
