Apostrophe Gun by Ravenswd Apostrophe Gun by Ravenswd
My first entry for NaNoEmo [link] -- late, it's day 3... anyway: Introducing the Apostrophe Gun, useful for correcting grammatical errors on public signs! You know you wish you had one.

The "BANG!" sound effect is in Times New Roman, which I felt was appropriate for a gun that basically acts as a long-distance typewriter.

The sign on the wall font is "Cafe Pixels" by `Mirz123 [link]

This reminds me of an old Dave Berg cartoon I saw in Mad Magazine:

A guy passes by a sign on the wall that said, "If It Ain't Broke, Don't Fix It."

The guy pulled out a pen and marked out "Ain't" and replaced it with "Isn't."

And just as he was about to leave, the sign fell down and shattered. :facepalm:

Your work here, BTW... ain't broke. :thumbsup: :)

One of my Dad's favorite sayings. Anything worth doing is worth doing right... the first time. This reminded me of that. =)

I love the gun concept. What I need is a bola that will flip my "e"'s and "i"'s around! =D

Hahaha, great! Does the gun at some point eliminate the writer if they make too many apostrophe mistakes? :p

It may be a late entry, but this is spectacularly cute. It does indeed make me wish that apostrophe guns were really a thing.

Nice choice of text, too. :-)

Thank-you. I was looking through a list of short common sayings and felt this one would be ironic. :)
