atypical submission


Colleen cracked me up with this email: "I saw this guy at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston recently. It's a sculpture of a Chinese demon, but it inspired my boyfriend to immediately say, "Those air quotes are totally unnecessary." So of course I'm sending it to you."

I was an art major, so naturally I think this is the most awesome pic I've seen you post!

Thank you Colleen and Colleen's boyfriend. That was a good laugh.

That is just awesome!

Say, could it be that a demon *invented* air quotes?

(I actually don't mind air quotes where appropriate. The only other unambiguous way to convey quotation marks in speech is to say "quote" and "unquote," which is cumbersome, frequently messed up, and no less annoying.)

I hope that demon didn't see me laughing at my computer. Fantastic!

The demon is air quoting what you told him your Chinese symbol tattoo means, because he knows what it really says.

This is awesome... as I've often thought that there should be a blog for unnecessary air quotes.
