your guess is as good as mine.


Jason saw this one in Orlando. He doesn't know what ske means. Or ""ske"". This might be the most inexplicable thing I've seen in a while.

without the benefit(or burden) of context one has complete freedom to snark away!!

My first thought is that it is shorthand for the fakeout term psych or "Sike" as in... "I think you're hot, Sike".

Great one! I love this blog, I just found it. I will email you one that I got just the other day.

I'm glad this made the cut. Pretty exciting. Unfortunately there really isn't any helpful context clues for this mysterious "ske". It was on a sign with a ghost and an address. Next to a pizza place. I'm not sure if it was for a party or a garage sale. No idea.

I knew that when I saw the quad-quotes that I had something really special on my hands. I'm just thankful that there's a place like this where I can share it with the rest of the world. You're welcome, world. You're welcome.

"ske"

as in skeet

as in "Oh skeet skeet skeet".

I will not go on and explain this.

Looks like initials to me...

Dancing initials!

Looks like a graffiti writer's tag to me.

Well, there's a big circle above it. In my mind it's some sort of fancy stick man wearing a shirt with the initials SKE on it. Those aren't quotes, those are arms and legs!

This post begs the question of where to draw the line between unnecessary quotation marks and "action lines" as in cartoons.

no, this post does not beg the question.

actually, it's the title of a poem "O Ske," an ode to sake, which is an approximated pronunciation of the word after having imbibed. and, of course, one is likely to see double.

it's quite literal.
