Oh "My" God

redqueenmeg, this is right up your alley:  a blog about misplaced quotation marks.

I've been laughing for half an hour.

Hee, I found that link in my ReadyMade magazine. :)

There's even an example of this at my workplace, a sign where you exit that says

RETURN VISITOR BADGES HERE

"YOU DO NOT HAVE TO RETURN TO THE VISITOR CENTER"

I seem to notice these all over. Maybe I need to start snapping pictures.

oh goodness, i love unnecessary quotation marks. i saw one today outside an indian restaurant, boasting that they housed the largest indian "buffet" in the city. how is that different from a real buffet? is the food all piled on the floor?

i wish i had thought of this idea. dammit, that should have been "my" blog.

These drive me crazy and the other one I hate is the misplaced apostrophe.

i hate that too. mike actually does that ALL THE TIME. he will write things like "i do'nt think so". i swear if he and i had emailed when we were dating i probably never would have married him. thank god for the internetz.

I also mean stuff like "Fresh Egg's $1.50" on the local farmstand. Possessives, plurals and contractions all have different rules people!

I'm just glad I'm not the only one who notices this stuff.
