My favorite use of quotation marks

Here’s a great example of my very favorite misuse of quotation marks: the use of quotation marks to indicate emphasis, where it should probably be underlined or bolded. This is a card we recieved at our latest baby shower.

So it’s not for Betsy; it’s for someone like Betsy, or perhaps someone pretending to be Betsy?

  1. Sweet! I’m a big fan of the inappropriately used quotation mark. Just posted this “healthy” snack photo from my trip to canada this summer: http://www.flickr.com/photos/peterjbromberg/1606508266/

    For some reason, I notice in our local real estate guide every realtor has a nickname in quotes. Jane “Betsy” Collins or Robert “Jim” Bannister. Is that a Jersey thing or a Realtor thing? Anyway, thanks for the laugh :-)
