The Gallery Of "Misused" Quotation Marks

A sign at a restaurant in Novi, MI:

Have Breakfast with "Santa."

Geez, way to tip off the kiddies about the whole Santa thing

(via Daily Jive)

Comments: "quote"

The proof is in the reading.

The "Proof" or the "Reading"?

Thank you for linking that! Wow. The gallery is superb. It's nice to know I'm not alone in my hatred of misused quotation marks.

One that used to irritate me immoderately was outside a local barber shop. It read: "Hair!!! Cut!!! Sir!!!"

Yes - the "Gallery" is good, isn't it.

(These are the easiest "replies" to comments I've ever typed)

btw - there was a good quote on quotation marks here:
"I am irony ironized. My new life is surrounded by so many quotation marks that they cancel each other out."

You'd think the exclamation marks are the prerogative of the customer.

(A number 2 on the sides and number 3 on the top with no exclamation marks, thanks)
