^Although MLA format says there should be no apostrophe on APs, although recognizing that the "AP's" form is common colloquially, with "APer" it's unclear if it should be "APer's" (which is allowed for acronyms with lower case letter to distinguish it being read "A-P-ers" over "A-Pers"), or if it should be "APers" since the "Per" can be interpreted as the ending of the word Passholder....
This just goes to show what a flop this thing is. Now they have to give them away.
They HAVE been giving them away. To AP holders anyway.
Just thinking out loud here, but as I recall, many AP holders have been saying they wish they'd get some extra appreciation. Well...here it is! It might not be what you had envisioned, but it's something. Even if you don't like the ears, you can always sell them or give them away.
