Why do folks who make quotation marks in the air with two fingers of each hand always flex those fingers twice? It's equivalent to "" ****** "" and is very irritating.

Mini Me, stop humping the "laser". Honest to God! Why don't you and the giant "laser" get a fricken room for God's sakes?







Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.


Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.

Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.

they do it for the extra emphasis. While it irritates me a little as well I usually just assume the person doing so is just an annoying asshole.

Only one of these statements are true:
  • TatorTodd is normal
  • TatorTodd is “normal”

    That’s a good example of why air quotes are necessary. A really exaggerated wink would work too.

    I think it's way worse when people actually say the words "quote, unquote" while they make the motion.

    Are single ones (flexing the fingers just once) OK, then?

    I am so sharing this with my doc whose 5 year old started doing this without any understanding of WTF he was doing. And, of course, they laugh at him and can't figure out why it happens more.
