do something with queso dip somewhere


Pat from Literally, a weblog gives us this one. I like the way the handwriting attempts to mimic the font there. Also, note the extra single close quote up there at the top. Embellishment? I don't know. Neither do I know where you are supposed to do an action that may or may not be ordering.

I would think the quote would be the opposite of what they are: Order 'queso dip' here."

Apparently they want us to pretend to order the dip somewhere in the vicinity.

It's easy to get carried away with quotation marks. I mean, for someone who isn't even sure whether or not the customer should be ordering here there's a good chance he also doesn't know exactly how many lines to include in a quotation mark.

My favorite quote:

Back up 9 trucks!

Wait, brainstorm, I think I just figured it out. Okay, so "order." They're making sure you realize that you don't order the dip around, that you place an order for it. And "here." They mean that you don't place the order "here" here, while staring at the sign, but at the adjacent counter.

Makes total sense, I deem the quotes 100% necessary.

Browsing through your unique and entertaing blog has been a good way to spend a lazy afternoon.
Thanks for the laughs.

That paper looks horribly stained from grease or something.

Things I like about this sign:
1. It's laminated.
2. It looks like the original sign said one thing, then it was covered up by a large piece of butcher tape.
3. It makes absolutely no sense at all.
4. It's totally a greasy burger joint....grease-stained-sign...

By the way...I LOVE this blog!!! Everyone at my work reads it....

I love this blog. I had no idea people were so against type treatment or underlines to give words emphasis. Love it. Too funny!

No "really" LOL

hold on a moment - I'm all for underlining. Who ever said anything about that?

Oh, I am not dissing you, I'm dissing the world. I dont know why they use
all of those damn quotation marks, my coworker and I thought your blog was
so friggin funny. She is a writer and I am a communications specialist. So
this blog hits close to home. We are always laughing at the sick and twisted
misuse of grammar. Too funny.
