Bite this!

Know what else bites? Being forced to witness an apostrophe hanging around a word it’s got no business being around. Unless, of course, this T-shirt is talking about the actual bite of the holiday, if the holiday could indeed bite someone (in which case, it’s just a sentence fragment, hanging out there all by its lonesome). I imagine that a holiday's bite would be painful like stepping on pine needles and would leave your skin feeling a wee bit spicy like you just got rubbed down with cinnamon…but somehow I doubt that’s what they're getting at.

Some punctuationally-challenged person’s getting coal in his stocking this season.
