Tales of the "Interesting" and Weird

Two unrelated blogs that linked to one another gave me a chuckle this morning.

The "interesting" one is about the often unnecessary use of "quotation marks." The English language is funny and its rules are befuddling, even to those most deeply steeped in the intricacies of the dangling participle and the use of the subjunctive. However here is a blog which highlights the strange and wonderful (and mostly redundant) use of quotation marks. Check it out here.

The weird site has to do with that strange growth on the upper lip of certain gentlemen (and a few unfortunate women). I still have a mustache after all these years and my wife has never seen me without one. For a very proper look at mustaches of the nineteenth century check out this blog.
