Y'know, for the first time ever I think the quotes are actually legitimate in this one -- being as "fast food" is a specific term and they're not necessarily referring to food which is traveling at a high velocity.Plus, I've been to some "fast" food places which make the term seem really ironic! :P
Anybody for a slow cone?
I agree, for once this one is actually acceptable.
Yay, me, too! These quotes are in the right place. They're even NECESSARY!
They are correctly used, yes.Grammar pedant's need to be "extra careful" to get it "right"!
I agree, this is a perfectly correct use of quotes. To ignore them would be to suggest that the despicable phrase "fast food" had entered common lexicon. The author is using quotes to express distaste for the concept, suggesting it is neither acceptable in language nor on the palette.
It's so ironic when there is an acceptable " usage posted on a blog suggesting failure. Oh well, I am "disheartened". :)
Mr. Submitter, these quotation marks are not as "wrong" as you might think.
