"I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for approval, I can tell you I don't have any. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills -- skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you leave my language alone right now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will punctuate you."

Talk about greengrocers' apostrophes! And it's even a green sign. At first I was surprised that the misspelled nectarines didn't have an apostrophe, but if you look closely you can see that there are smaller (perhaps practice?) letters underneath the bigger letters, and the smaller "necterines" appears to have its apostrophe firmly in place.
