I *love* this stuff!


OK, so I am a grammar and punctuation nerd. I'll admit, I'm not perfect, but I have a deep and sincere appreciation for both, and I like it that way.

That's why the "blog" of "unnecessary" quotation marks has me in stitches tonight! (Photo thanks to the site, of course.)

This is one of my (many) pet peeves... What about the world please, or new, or special compels people to put it in quotes? Has sarcasm been lost? (That would be a sad day!)

What's your grammar or punctuation pet peeve? We've been talking about this elsewhere, and there are a LOT of opportunities for improvement in this world!

With thanks to mental_floss for sharing this "great" site ;)

I "love" your photo of "misplaced" quote marks. :) Being somewhat of a grammar "fiend" myself, I can sympathise with how this makes you insane. My personal bugbear is when people misuse apostrophe's, like all those situation's where its not really necessary to put apostrophe's in, and also, when people forget them when its really necessary.

(Heres hoping I made all the mistake's correctly in this post, or it might look a little silly!)
