wait, so who said, huh?


Malachi claims to have gotten stuck in a recursive loop by this sign. I can't say I did much better.
Slow posting this weekend, I'm at the public address conference learning things.

I could see this sign maybe having a set of quotes. Just not there. Maybe after the word "said"; you know, around the quote!

Man, that sad. They were almost correct. Should be yes, we said, "3 lb burrito."

I like that the second "3 LB. Burrito" is slightly smaller. As if the first one is shouted and the second said with more calm.

any restaurant that uses Shoe Carnival as a landmark has to have some quality food!

Gawd, if people actually thought for 3 seconds before they did stuff like this, it wouldn't happen so often! However, is it wrong that I want a 3lb burrito now? I'm sorry. :D

Part of me wants to move that second quotation to after "Yes," so at least that line reads properly on its own:

"Yes," we said!

And "Yes," I do need to get a life.

Hey that's awesome! "she said"

If we adopted this "she suggested" it would make quotations in literature a lot easier to get right! "she joked"

Maybe this sign is from a reverso-universe "she pondered"
