The Importance of Quote Marks

Read closely the second "A" in this Q and A regarding California's new driving-with-cellphone regulations and you'll find: Motorists 18 and over may use a "hands-free device."

Notice how "hands-free device" is in quotes. That means it's a joke! We're all off the hook! Of course we don't really have to use a hands-free device while talking and driving. The state is just having a josh with us. Good one, California!

Yeah, sure, I'll get right on that "hands-free device" ... [pause as the tension builds] ... HAHAHAHAHA! Ah, man, that was funny. "Hands-free device" -- yeah right!

Definition of the Day

diarrhea noun : an intestinal disorder characterized by abnormal frequency and fluidity of fecal evacuations. Also, diarrhoea.

I think this is my favorite definition in the dictionary because it's so goddamn gross.
