Criminal Sentence 302: What kind of soup is that?

On a sign at a drugstore:

"Cambell,s soup"

Sure the p is silent, but it's not absent.

And a comma is not the same as an apostrophe. See this mini-rant.

I assume this intentional because they ran out of sign material. I hope.

If only it were intentional! We can hope, it's true!
