What's "up" with all those "quotes"?

"Wow"! A whole "website" devoted to "unnecessary" "quotes"!

at "first" "I" didn't get "it".

"I" was expecting "quotes" to be "quotes" from "people" and "not" the "quotation" "mark".

Pretty "funny"

"I" think, "they", need a "website" on "unnecessary" "commas", "I" am, "really" "good", at "those".

The book: Eats, Shoots, and Leaves discusses the differences between a panda bear who:

Eats Shoots and Leaves - describes panda dietary habits vs.

Eats, Shoots, and Leaves - describes a hungry, murderous, and callous panda bear


Also, there IS a website that focuses on ill-located hyphens, I'm not sure about extra commas

Perhaps they should put their quotes in quotes. Like, I don't """mean""" to quote.
