It's Maid-Wrong, not least when it comes to proper punctuation!

If there's anything that would take away a Grammarphile's appetite, it's an error on a sign hanging on the wall of a restaurant. Out where DARCY lives, there's this chain of restaurants called Maid-Rite, and they are apparently prone to hanging up poorly-punctuated, poorly-capitalized slogans. There shouldn't be an apostrophe in the word Says...and since they capitalized the first letter of everything else, they should have capitalized the word It. (Hey, Maid-Rite--just because it's a small word doesn't mean you don't capitalize it! You don't capitalize little words that are prepositions, but it is not one of those, mmkay?)

Thanks to DARCY for spotting this one!
