Let's not forget adding quotations while speaking. One of the late Chris Farley's best bits on SNL was on Weekend Update, where he kept adding air quotations with his fingers to odd phrases and words.

As long as we're celebrating punctuation here is my all time favorite - "Times Roman Font Announces Shortage of Periods

Please enjoy.

I often use them to denote sarcasm "genius."

BTW, is that ellipsis in God Bless America really necessary?

Hey Bean...

I have the "misused apostrophe and quotation mark" conversation with a friend of mine quite often. We decided to just think it's funny.
By the way, did you ever think you'd live to see the day that you would find yourself in the pages of GQ magazine?? Nice going.

Dieri

Wow Bean, you scored another hit like your Apostrophe rant! This post is fresh to death! Bring on more grammar stuff!

Ken

Grammar, punctuation, and manifest destiny aside since when are there 63 stars on the flag?

Bean you should feature/rant on your blog about the mispronounciation of words like "supposeBly" or "tomArrow." All these are coming from one co-worker who always comes in to work, buzzing about her dream the night before, saying, "I dram that..." She, of course meant "I dreamt that." Oh, I could go on and on...
