to me, quotes used incorrectly always carry some sense of sarcasm. kind of like a wink, wink, nudge, nudge kind of thing. the thumbs-up only adds to the sarcasm. yes, i'm bitter.
I could forgive the quotation marks as part of some company slogan. But that thumb has me picturing some Enzyte-type of character with a hearty wink, nod, and grin. No, I'm not bitter.
if you're gonna do the enthusiastic thumbs up thing, "the freshmaker!" is a much better slogan.
No, the thumbs-up thing is there to help us imagine what could happen to the hand of some unfortunate passerby of the unattended pump in question.
^oh, as in that might be the only finger you have left if you don't comply?
I definitely have to agree that the thumbs-up is almost as good as a wink for adding to the sense that the whole thing is meant to be sarcastic.
