Punctu-action

Some punctuation marks should remain firmly on the page.

He probably should have gotten that "paternity test..."

Ah, air quotes. One of my teachers in high-school used them a lot, soon we all started doing it. It's addictive.

Victor Borge is disappointed in you.

Don't quote me on this.

I was thinking the same thing, DVS.

I remember using air quotes.... I was in grade 5.

P.S. I feel terribly laughing at the stinger....

here's the thing: i knew exactly what was going to happen when paul walked into the scene.

but i still laughed because it was funny.

Oh man... That's weird not too long ago I was making fun of one of my friends because he was using air quotes at the wrong time...

But oh dear... If anyone I knew started using air quotes when quoting themselves or something I just said, I'd punch them. I'd warn them first though, but still... That would get so annoying so very quickly...

I was expecting Graham to talk only in questions, like each one was a different punctuation mark or something, but that worked too.

DVS BSTrD:
Victor Borge is disappointed in you.

Don't quote me on this.

I'm "quoting" you, deal with it! And you just mentioned two of the best videos I've found on youtube. :3

OT: The frustration part, I laughed so "hard". ;)

wheels started to come off near the end there but that was a strong premise.

actually based on the description plus Graham's question mark shirt I thought they were supposed to be "personifying" punctuation. so for the first couple of Matt's lines I thought was was supposed to literally "be" quotation marks. that's cool, right? I'm a cool guy. follow me on twitter dot com

I "liked" this skit.
Event I thought it "might" rely too heavily on "one" joke, it was still quite "funny".

And that was the "17th time" I "died"...

I would slap the ever-loving shit out of my friends if they started this shit with me. If it was a random stranger... I'd be tempted to deck them. Air quotes have a time and a place to be used, which are never and no-where, respectively.

that was hard to watch, misuse of air quotes... they do me harm

This is a "great" video.
One of your "best" if you "ask" me.

Keep up "the" good work.

I "can't wait" for next weeks episode.

Well, -that- was darker than the average LRR video...

I have to say, though, that watching Graham all hysterical about air quotes made me giggle. Graham Stark, fighting for truth, justice, and proper usage!

This could be an indictment of some current conversations on the Escapist.

Anyway, "good job."

Why does this all seem familiar?

Oh yeah.

Loved the zing at the end. So wrong, so funny.

That was "hilarious".

Reminded me of that one time I tried to install "lasers" on the moon my "death star".

I think you're "taking" this too seriously.
Remember what happened to "Graham" in the video?
"Don't" let that happen to you.

"His" two children...

Made me laugh. Loved the video.

Oh god why

Oyyyy... yeah I am right there with Graham's character in this one... it really is pretty annoying how quotation has become muddled up with emphasis.

How did I know that Limpy Dave would be Paul?

WAIT! This is all supposed to happen in July! Someone precall the fire department and get a defibrillator to the park, you can still save phil and his family!

Another "great" video. I "can't wait" to see what you do "next" week.

Those videos were pretty "funny".

New rule because of this (admited hilarious) video: Anyone who uses air quotes in an inappropriate context (i.e. not being satirical or making an inuendo) is legally allowed to be punched in the face.

Aaarghhh! I almost had a heart attack watching this episode.

Yes!

Graham's death was punctuation to a life well spent!

So much bird poop on that table...

This was "hilarious"

Even when written out, random quotation marks can be distracting. Especially on BBC headlines. I know that they are quoting actual sources, but my mind always jumps to sarcasm.

Current headlines:
'Al-Qaeda' wreaks Yemen carnage
Protesters 'attack Mali leader'
Cheap dysentery drug 'promising'
