Quotation marks can be used when quoting someone (der), but they can also be used to show sarcasm. Here’s an example:

Everyone in the theatre could see the “surprise” ending coming halfway through the movie.

However, some folks can’t seem to comprehend that and use quotation marks incorrectly. Compare these two sentences:

Hank and his best friend Jake went to the movies together.

Hank and his “best friend” Jake went to the movies together.

See? Changes the whole meaning of the sentence, correct? Anyway, here are fifteen examples of when quotation marks have been used incorrectly, much to the amusement of all. Well, me anyway. Hope you “enjoy” them.
