We "care" about upholding the bill of rights

I like to believe the signmakers put those quotes in for sarcasm reasons (spotted by me and Jim atop smoky mountain national park).

more food you "might" want to eat

thanks to frequent contributor Hailey who found this in a Great Wraps in San Antonio. I'm disappointed she didn't order it using air quotes.

reader maureen documents an additional case here. I suspect these quotation marks are meaningful, but it is still strange.

no new quotes today

except this post at crummy church signs includes some sketchy quotes (see the sign beginning "it's back")

Crummy church signs also includes high quality snarking that I, for one, approve of. Perhaps friends of this blog would also appreciate it. (thanks to Jon and Claude for bringing it to my attention)

"data" = the result of pseudo-science

thanks to my friend and ex-roommate Sarah for sharing this memo from her school:

- (speaker's name removed) will be at our school on October 17th to meet with staff
about possible "options" due to savings under the "Cafeteria Plan"

-October 20th is a one-half day of school for "data" review and PDSA refinement

-October 27th will be the same "as above"
