curly quotes vs. "ugly quotes"
My silly mind | January 13, 2010 | Silly

Posted on 01/12/2010 11:36:46 PM PST by Silly

HEY! You're driving me CRAZE!

I HATE those "ugly quote marks", when it’s just as easy to use “curly quotes.”

And please, when quote marks occur at the end of a sentence, remember to place the ending period inside the “curly quotes.”

IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK?! YOU ARE DRIVING ME CRAZE!

I don’t have curly quotes on my keyboard.
Where can I get a Klingon keyboard?

CRAZE? Over punctuation?

Misspellings drive me crazy much more than punctuation.

Plastic pie, plastic pie,
Shot a spastic in the eye.
Jesus heal’d that spastic’s eye!
Pretty, pretty plastic pie!

(Repeat until spank’d.)

Stan as you can see, the Klingon keyboard has no curly quotes, either.

The value menu at Sonic Drive In has a Jr. Chili-Cheese Wrap and a small order of tater tots for about two bucks.

I am so stoked!

Curly quotes are sissy quotes. They are for limp-wristed typists and left coast computer programmers. You’re not one of those, are you?
