Israel Police Suspect Price Tag’s Role in Missing Apostrophe

Israel’s literary police have launched a nationwide hunt after a key apostrophe went missing from the 20 14 Writers’ Festival in Jerusalem.

“I looked at all the material for the festival and it had just disappeared,” said Inspector Jasper Fforde.

Insp Fforde said several lines of inquiry are being followed.

“We are speaking to ultra-orthodox activists who we suspect may find the apostrophe too feminine to appear in public in Jerusalem,” he said. “We also fear that Palestinian militants may have stolen it for use in a planned terror strike, or right-wing Israelis may have taken it in a ‘price-tag’ attack.”

“But the most likely culprits are Israelis, who tend to put apostrophes everywhere except the place they are supposed to go,” he said.
