Your, You're, Yore

If I could find the video, I'd grab a still of the scene I need. I can't, so you'll just have to just believe my tale.

Last night's Tonight Show episode was from Chicago, 1996. Michael Jordan and David Spade were the featured guests. I was still living in Chicago at the time of the original airing and thought it would be fun for David and I to watch the show. I'm happy I did. Because if I hadn't, I would have missed Michael Jordan's segment and (here's the part worth mentioning) the woman holding the tacky handmade sign reading: YOUR THE BEST.

What? Seriously, sweetie?

You're on a nationally televised program holding a sign with incorrect grammar?

We all make mistakes. Every last one of us. I make typos all the time. I spell check, double check my punctuation (which is never perfect), and quite often reword questionable sentences several minutes after I hit 'post'. I'm sure this entry has more than one mistake. I'm certain several revisions will be made. But here's my point:
    If you're going to show the world how you feel about a celebrity, if cameras are rolling, if any of the major networks will have cameras stationed anywhere in the immediate vicinity, please, for the love of punctuation, make sure your poster is flawless!
I've said it before, I'll say it again: This is why I constantly carry a Sharpie, and why I can't enter a grocery store within a ten mile radius of my home.

Who knew a grocer's apostrophe and a missing 'e' could get you blacklisted?

    This is why I love you so. Although I haven't gotten to the point where I carry a sharpie, it seems like a great idea.
