Jokes For Copy Editors
Beyonce's new record is entitled B'Day. Apparently because it is due for release on Sept. 4, her birthday. Fair enough.

But shouldn't she have opted for a hyphen instead of an apostrophe? Because, as it stands, couldn't her record just as easily be confused with a seemingly phonetic celebration of the "low-mounted plumbing fixture or type of sink intended for washing the external genitalia and the anus?"

Just saying.

(And that said, a confession: I'm hopelessly addicted to Ring The Alarm. Put the record in my rented Corolla - colour: gold - this weekend and couldn't get past track five. If I was still paid to do so, I'm not sure how I could ever offer a review of the entire album - I can only speculate that the album runs longer than five tracks and, having heard track five, I can't remember anything of the first four.)
