    Armed with some stickers, a ladder, and his “apostrophiser” (A tool he invented for those apostrophes in hard-to-reach banners) the mysterious avenger has been correcting tenses, punctuation, and apostrophes all over shop banners and street signs for the last 13 years.

    Some call him the Banksy of punctuation. Some are calling it vandalism. The modern hero thinks otherwise:

    “People might say what I am doing is wrong, but it is more of a crime to have the apostrophes wrong in the first place.”

    Mr. Grammar Vigilante, I think the world needs more people like you.

    Thank you for your service.
