40 Times People Misused Quotation Marks With Hilarious Results

Published 4 years ago

It’s crazy how such a little grammatical error can completely transform a sentence. Here’s an example for you: I’ve put the baby to sleep vs. I’ve put the baby to “sleep”. Know what we’re getting at?

Some keen-eyed people even started collecting the most ridiculously misused quotation marks in a subreddit called /r/suspiciousquotes/ and they’re absolutely hilarious. Check out a collection of some of the best ones in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!
