it's not even a parking lot anymore


Hugh spotted this one. I guess there is a limited number of changes a parking lot can really make.

I would argue that this is an appropriate use of quotation marks, since they are using a pun. It's not very funny, but would probably pass for correct grammar.

Gotta give them credit for not writing "alot"....although if they hadn't been making a pun, they might have...

Yeah, that was a bit harsh: it was done intentionally, as a joke.

... I even kinda like it. :D

Definitely not an error on this one, just lame :)

I think it might have worked better if they just put "lot" in quotation marks. Placing the phrase "a lot" in quotation marks is dangerously close to "alot" in my book - the separation of those two words (and the use of the noun "lot" meaning of course a group or several) is slowly being lost in modern English

I don't have a problem with this one.

I'd have to agree with previous comments. This is a lame joke rather than an incorrect use of quotation marks.
