My new favorite blog is The “Blog” of “Unnecessary” “Quotation Marks.” It displays different signs each day that include misappropriations of quotation marks which result in humorous possible misunderstandings.; for example, when someone writes “don’t” step on the grass – are they being sarcastic when they say “don’t”?

(But market research speculates that there is room in the industry for a counter product such as Baptist Wax which is applied to the entire body and the believer’s car rather than just being poured over the affected area.)

Here’s another favorite:


Imagine selling someone fruit spread by making quotation marks in the air with your fingers while saying that the product includes actual fruit. Probably not a good move. Anyway, when you’re bored with that blog check out the Apostrophe Abuse blog.
