      First a being a douche blast

    • RAY

      Sometimes I just wait to comment so I won't be "THAT GUY". Guy pronounced "GAY"!!!

  • Shawny

    "first" is "gay"

    • Riane

      Are you a slut?

  • B!!!


    • bob

      or so they "say"

  • fotnot

    Does anyone else say the parts in quotations differently in their mind as well?

    • RoJo

      Yes, yes I do. Every time.

    • Simon

      I say it in my mind like Dr. Evil says "Laser"

    • Wrecktum

      usually much, "slower" and more "emphasized"

      • Mike

        exactly like that.

    • manilovefilmsdylan

      I think everyone does. That's kinda the point.

      • k t

        Everyone who knows how to use quotations (not the people who made the signs)

    • Tomas

      Reminds me of an episode of Friends when Joey keeps incorrectly using air quotation marks. o.0

    • Joe

      What's your definition of "differently"?

  • jmdmn

    #5 sort of seems like a win-win…

      Depends on what the butcher looks like 😉

    • DarthLoki

      I would definitely have to agree…

  • Chiver2099

    NO …first is gay! No question there.

    • donuts

      what does "question" have to do with anything?
      they're quotation marks not question marks.

      • A BiPolar Guy

        He's commenting on firsters, not one of the pictures. For me Firsters are annoying but not worth bothering to insult . If they get a thrill out of it, fine by me.

  • PDiddily420

    " "

    I don't think these mean what you think they mean.

    • Grant

      Wow – plus a million for the 'Princess Bride' reference!

    • Mercutio


  • yup

    "public" education

    • burr

      public "education"

    • 86Celticsboy

      I think you mean public "education"

      • Ryan

        Maybe next time buddy.

  • ASHley :)

    #6 Sign me up!

  • Unfkngblvbl

    #14 would actually be correctly used for son-in-law.

    • Forest

      … or a lesbian couple.

      • lughlamfada

        I got a card like this from my mother-in-law. It had money in it, so I didn't care.

        • zaffa

          youre mother in law gives you a card with money? i remember my 10th birthday too…

          • Unfkngblvbl


  • neal

    #13 do we remove things from the toilet than?

    • Endo

      Then. I know, I'm an asshole.

    • Trav1121

      If you aren't supposed to put anything in the toilet, wtf are they there for? Decoration?

  • Julie

    " is not interchangable for bold font or underlining

    • SpacemanSpiff

      you got that "right"

    • salute my shorts

      Thank "you"

    • Clutch101

      Don't forget about italics. They hate that!

  • etcrr

    This reminds me of Austin Powers using air quotes

    • Guest


    • anon

      i one time watched Austin Powers.

    • Reese

      The "laser"

    • Gunsmokejackson

      That was Dr Evil, "dumbass"

  • Endo

    We live in a world of idiots.

  • Grant

    Thank you, Chive, for posting this on the site. The art of syntax has been all but completely abandoned by society. KCCO.

    • Sploon

      Punctuation is not syntax. Other than that, you are correct.

  • Pwnapotamus

    #1 Friends share a meal, best friends share "CRABS."

  • Underbaker

    #6 I can just picture the massage lady making air quotes with her fingers as she asks "You likey "massage"?"

    • JewLover

      that's racist

      • FuckYou

        go play in an oven…

    • beans


  • RobsterCraws

    #18 Am I missing something here? "Real Food" is their slogan.

    • JWimer

      I have ate there, its in Johnson City, Tennessee

      • duh

        I have read here

    • Ramsey

      Yeah, good beer selection though.

  • organix85

    #9 Why would anyone eat that stuff to begin with? "Oh, my shoes came with a snack!"

    • Cantaloupe

      Sometimes it's in beef jerky packages. It's much more appetizing then.

    • StarznSkullz

      You mean your "shoes" came with a "snack"?!?

    • sleepy_one


    • Underbaker

      San Antonio Shoe's (SAS) always gives you a small box of chocolate truffles when you buy from them.

  • Slappy_McGee

    I think a lot of non-English speakers use quotations to emphasize words. I'm not sure if it's a translation thing, but they seem to quote words when English speakers would italicize or underline them.

    Food for thought.

    • mbomb

      Perhaps, but you can also see people posting in this comment section doing it wrong. My boss speaks perfect english and does this all the time, drives me nuts. As someone already pointed out, people often use quotation marks, where bolding, underlining or italicizing would be proper.

      • diz

        people are only using the quotes in the comments because of the type of post my friend.

  • crapflinger

    #18 ….their food is soooooooo good. and so so "real"…they can make the hell out of a cheesecake

    • solomonoftm

      I'll kill a man for their pizza

  • Dick Salad

    These are funny when you put your hands up and do the "quotation sign" with your hands. Oh and #16 looks pretty fuckin accurate.

    • jake

      as a security guard, i fully endorse your comment

  • Yow

    If a girl told these guys 'come on, put your "penis" into my vagina', they'd probably take it as a compliment

  • Underbaker

    #24 They can throw in a set of unneeded quotes, but they can't buy an apostrophe?

    • HarHar

      "I'd like to buy an E"

      "One E"

      • Underbaker

        I usually pride myself on picking up subtle jabs, but this one is a little to subtle for me.

        • poop

          Just grab the extra from #22. Pretty sure the stamps don't own anything.

  • Indiana Chive Fan

    Maybe "BJ" wasn't subtle enough?
