In Celebration of “Quotation Marks”

I once bought a post card up in Hibbing, Minn., that showed an aerial shot of the town with the word “Hibbing” printed over the front.

Including the quotation marks.

Made me wonder — so that’s not really Hibbing, then, just some sort of Hibbingesque representation? Or it’s sarcastically Hibbing? What?

I believe we’ve had some discussion about unnecessary apostrophes here. So here’s a variation on the theme. Fellow punctuationheads everywhere: Revel a while in “this.”

    “Fabulous.” “Great” to see there’s a blog about this idiocy.
