"Wash" "hands," eh?

There is an amusing blog for the grammatically-minded among us (I'm sure there's something wrong with that clause...) called The "Blog" of "Unnecessary" Quotations. If the appeal of the blog has to be explained to someone, that person is just not part of the blog's audience. The ridiculous, asinine, unneeded use of quotation marks is a personal bugaboo of mine, but finding them on signs has always been a great joy to me as well, even before the blog existed. Here's one I found today in the men's room at a nice faux-Irish restaurant.

1) So I wonder what "wash hands" really means in this joint?

2) ...and which employee has to "do it"?

  1. I sure as hell hope it's whichever "employee" was cooking *your* lunch!

    come with high qaulity and the fashion design that also add the popularity to the bags. Also there are many Louis Vuitton Outlet Stores that sold in the market so when you selecting the bags you need to be careful enough. Also we all these the
    Louis Vuitton Women's Handbags that also deigned with the same materials that these Louis Vuitton Men's Handbags that designed with.Anyway all of these Louis Vuitton Outlet that provide you all kinds of the Louis Vuitton Watches.When talking about the LV Handbags that people all know that such bags that only used by these wealth women due to the high price. In this season, it is said that the Louis Vuitton Belts as well as these Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis sold well in the market.
