A "great" blog, kinda food-related

I discovered The "Blog" of "Unnecessary" Quotation Marks today via Pop Candy so I thought I'd share the link here, mostly because I think it's hilarious. Also, a lot of the examples are from restaurants, which I think are some of the biggest misusers of punctuation marks in general. Seen any good ones around here?

That is hilarious! I "know" there are some local offenders.

I can't be 100% sure, but check out the Pepperpod in Newport's menu on the wall for some creative use of punctuation.

Good tip! I think I'm going to start carrying around my camera in the hopes of documenting some offending signs and menus...

Well, it's not a restaurant but...

In the line for the Racer at King's Island. The sign reads:

Line Jumping is "Not" a Sport.

Always been a favorite of mine.
