Not sure where the apostrophe goes in the possessive? Just put it both before and after the S.

The Daily Hate and the Grauniad are getting more and more alike every day.

Which they'll buy in Germany and import.

Actually, they burn down an old bike and hope to get one with Shimano components.

Perfectly understandable, driving that model would be embarrassing. What a shitty dad for not seeing that in the first place!

Clearly it wasn't an early model either as Ferrari had covered that by ensuring the cars set fire to themselves without the owners having to get out the matches
