editing your life

Do you guys read The "Blog" of "Unnecessary" Quotations? You'd think it would get boring after a couple, but... it doesn't. Click through for today's.

Funny (and grammatically incorrect) on two levels. Teehee.

lol. I read it for laughs every day!

This one is my favorite: http://www.unnecessaryquotes.com/2009/07/used.html

Wow. It's like finding a long lost twin. Real life grammar mishaps are the best.

Sarah said...

I "love" it!

Christina, I just looked up your link. I have no words.

LOL -- Great share!

I would find this funny if I could read it through my tears. My life is for naught.

Is there a blog for apostrophe abuse too?

Precie said...

Any of the ones that say "free" are automatic favorites of mine...along with one sign from a restaurant with "vegetarian" food. LOL!

Now I'm going to have to spend my day using air quotes and annoying all those around me.

Well, I just laughed out loud while reading these at work. I think it was the "POOL" sign, or maybe "This plant is not edible." To be fair, I'm going to assume the hydrangea warning was a quote from an actual end-user. They just forgot to attribute it.

It's like when there's a wreck on the side of the road and you can't help looking...only this wreck is really, really long. And what died is good grammar.

My fav is The Building Formerly Known As Church: http://www.unnecessaryquotes.com/2008/03/actually-front-for-mob.html

The first time I saw it I laughed until I cried.

BAHAHAHA! I didn't even know this existed, and now I'm so "happy!"

The ones that say food is "fresh" disturb me the most. Fresh is such a relative term, apparently.

How did I not know about this blog? And, why didn't I take cell phone pictures of the McD's that was selling "New" Chicken "McNuggets" so I could send them in?

(Insert joke here about how at least the word "chicken" wasn't in quotes...)

Ohmigosh, I LOVE it! My husband, bless his soul, always puts in quotations marks! It makes me CRAZY!

*big shudder*

Oh gods, that's "beautiful". Thanks for posting it.

I occasionally poke fun at coworkers who use quotes for emphasis in their emails. This hasn't endeared me to anyone, but sometimes I can't help it. Now I think I'll just start putting this url in my sig line. :)

I remember a one-frame comic with a man about to take a bite of something. The caption read: complimentary food. The food on the fork said, "Nice teeth!"

I can't wait to "read" this blog!
