of course enthusiasm for Nickleback can't be sincere -- they suck!
@anonymause--totally agree. Especially since it's "Nickleback", which must be some kind of Nickelback cover band.WV-farthed. 'Nuff said.
I think this is a sighting of the rare Double Negative Unnecessary Quotation Marks, where the person uses unnecessary quotation marks hoping that people will think he or she is kidding, because the truth is so embarrassing. In this case, the person in question actually was going to see Nickelback but didn't want his/her friends to know (for obvious reasons), and thus put it in quotation marks so that the friends would think he/she was really going to see a band so awesomely indie that said friends wouldn't have ever heard of them. But in truth, the sign-maker is, in fact, one of the four Nickelback fans, and is (rightfully) ashamed of that fact.
Wait, am I reading this right? The Hotdogger?
