Superpoked

Has anyone else noticed this? I used Google to see if anyone has mentioned this already, but I couldn't find anything.

Superpoke'd

Yes, that's right, the incorrect use of apostophes. Why on earth do they have a bloody big apostrophe between Superpoke and the "d" at the end? They're using the name of the application and turning it into a verb. Here's how it should work:

poke: I poked the bear with a stick and made it mad
superpoke: I superpoked the bear and the bear flirted back


Seriously, "Superpoke'd"? What were they thinking?

Well spotted! I've never seen it with a d before.

It's very common with a plural s and commonly known as grocers' apostrophes, or grocers apostrophe's if you're being funny. Wikipedia have a small section on it at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apostrophe#Greengrocers.27_apostrophes
