"Why" "Are" "You" "Quoting" "That"?

I'm not at all shocked that there's a blog about unnecessary quotation marks, since there's a blog about everything, but I'm pleased all the same, because man do those things chap my ass! I mean, I guess people do it for emphasis like italics or something, but they just make it sound like you're being "ironic" or quoting yourself, which is just weird.

And without an abundance of unnecessary quotation marks, we wouldn't have the equally unnecessary, and possibly chapping, unnecessary air quotes! Rick S.
