How strange. That all looks very wrong to me! Except for the "Three Pro's"
one. That could be right because of the contraction of the word
Professionals, couldn't it? This example wouldn't be a possessive issue,
but rather a contraction one. The "Kid's" example would be totally wrong I
would think.

Thanks for the input!
