Best Eliot Spitzer quip at Verge

There have been a number of Eliot Spitzer, um, insights here at Verge. Best one so far from Ogilvy's Rory Sutherland (may have spelled the last name wrong) is this: "How can he possibly pay for sex from a Web site that spells emperors without an apostrophe?" You won't hear that insight on CNN.

Ummm ... maybe they chose to punctuate it thusly because that's one of several correct ways to do it? As in, a club of emperors? "Emperors" is plural, and rather than possessive, treated as a descriptor.

Lions Club, anyone? Teamsters Union?

Sorry. Easy snark brings out the grammarian in me.
