This morning, I saw a tweet by Twitter user @dracomallfoys in which they have carefully curated a collection of signs made amusing and honestly, fairly ominous, by the inclusion of completely unnecessary quotation marks.

I gleaned such enjoyment from this tweet that I set off on a journey to discover other examples of the phenomenon of unnecessary quotation marks, and I was not disappointed. Thrill to this collection of “slightly strange” signs spotted by the “Twitter community.”

Note also the unnecessary umlaut over the ‘o’ of ‘Close.’ Unnecessary umlauts are a world I have not yet explored.
This is the worst instance of unnecessary quotation marks I’ve ever seen. pic.twitter.com/QA3qrwWGWe

As scary as this all is, the above reminded me to revisit some of the greatest hits from the “Blog” of “Unnecessary” Quotation Marks. pic.twitter.com/NfOAu2YpPY
