Twitter’s Unnecessary Quotation Marks Make Everything Sound Suspicious

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.
