wait, what?


Jessica and friends took this photo at a tourist destination outside Moab, Utah. That is some really excellent wrong punctuation, in that it would have been dumb if it had been a correctly placed apostrophe, but now it's just incomprehensible.

So is this the largest unnecessary quotation mark to appear on this blog so far?

But is it even a quotation mark? It looks more like an umlaut to me…

Heavy metal tourist trap?

awesome! we should begin a quest for the largest unnecessary quotation marks in the world. or maybe it could be carved into the moon, chairface chippendale-style.

The mark is awesome, but so too is the arrow pointing to the hole. So is a hole in a rock like a cave or something? I don't quite get the attraction. Awesome entry.

I've driven by that "hole" n" the so-called "rock" a few times. It's not nearly as cool as you might think based on the effort required to maintain a large painted "sign" like that.

Basically, it's a house built into the side of the mountain, which is definitely a lot of effort but probably shouldn't be a huge tourist attraction.

Maybe the other set of quotation marks fell into the "hole."

@kalim -- Thanks for the link. I love how "deep french fryer" is listed among the "attractions." Good grief. And a bathtub?
