apostrophes are possessive.

The apostrophe is generally used to indicate possession, but it is also used to form the plural of letters referred to as words. In this case the word “assholes” is plural so the abbreviation “AH’s” is correct usage.

And this is why I like to hang around here.

Steve, What am I seeing on that far wall on the right? Is that a giant hand painted wall mural?
Pretty impressive if it is. It looks to be a painting of the same intersection and buildings as where you are standing. Got any shots of just that wall?

Hey Dave:

Yeah, it's a giant mural on the side of a building, fairly new. I didn't look at it too closely as I was going in a different direction. If I get back that way I"ll photograph it.

Up to anything interesting lately? That animal with the incredible antlers was amazing.

I have a few shots I think might become wall hangers if I ever get my butt around to processing them. I got a chance last night to fix the waterfall shot and was going to post up my rework but something went wrong with the upload or something. It looks very soft now and I'm not sure what the heck I did to it but I'm not going to post it looking like it does.

I don't get it. Please elaborate.

The apostrophe is usually used to form the possessive case of nouns (the man’s hat) or indefinite pronouns and contractions (it’s anybody’s guess).

The apostrophe is also used to form the plural of numerals, letters and words referred to as words (three 7’s, four a’s, six the’s)

But in the case you mentioned, the usage would be as if:
"There are three s's in the word "assholes".
So here the "s's" usage would be appropriate.

The case where the OP used to abbreviate the original "assholes", which is a pluralized form of a noun "asshole", the correct form would be "AHs", not "AH's", since that would lead us to believe its being used in a possessive manner. The case you are referring to as pluralization of words would be:
"There are three Bill's at my work, and four John's."

So I don't see how "Assholes" becomes "AH's" as I don't see the reference to a multiple form of "asshole", bur rather the abbreviation of "Assholes", which would make more sense as "AHs."
If it's a plural, don't use an apostrophe.

When the original photo was posted it was titled AH’s to abbreviate the plural word “Assholes.” Had the title been A’s it would have made little sense so the “H” was probably added to link that title to the poster.

Since the letter “h” in the word is lower case, the correct abbreviation should be Ah’s - that, at least, is my pedantic interpretation.
