Apostrophe-less Mobile RSS Posts

If you happen to be one of my fabulous readers who reads my blathering using a mobile RSS reader like Bloglines Mobile, you may have noticed that I don’t like using apostrophes. I’d just like you to know that I’m not really opposed to apostrophes. The problem appears to be caused by WordPress taking my rather boring straight up and down apostrophes and turning them into sexier slanted apostrophes, which Bloglines mobiles then fails to display.

So, while I may have plenty of grammatical issues, I swear putting an apostrophe between the ‘n’ and ‘t’ in ain’t ain’t one of them.

  1. So does this mean you can’t use “if’n” or fixin’ either? As in “I’m fixin’ to to walk to the 7-11 if’n it ain’t gonna rain.”

    If’n I cain’t use if’n, there ain’t no way I can blog with this crazed 22nd century RSS reader you speak of.


  2. I’m going to have to hear if’n in person sometime. This cheese whiz Minnesotan has no idea what you’re talkin’ about.

  3. If’n is a stretch Tex. Especially since you’ve been up Nort’ since you were 18 or so.

    And Ed, it’s Cheez Whiz, not Cheese Whiz. What kind of Minnesotan are you????

  4. Sorry about that, Kirk. I guess all the wine & non-processed cheese I’ve been consuming on the Left coast this week is clouding my memory.
