Gratuitous "Quotation Marks"

I think the highlight of my Stanford dining experience was this written over a large steel container of soup:

"BEEF" STEW

mmm, nothing like "beef"

Pass the Lord and praise the ammunition!

I am delighted to find this blog. I had just sent a memo to my corporate offices, suggesting that they ditch the quotation marks around "Setting The Standards of [sic] Aseptic Protocol" . I also suggested replacing the "of" with For.

I have personal favorites:

"Fresh" Fish [Oh, really?]
Under "New" Management
Se Habla "Espanol"

Best regards,

John Potter
