*grammar nazi hat on*

"Okay, Mister pedantic," actually.

CORRECT

INCORRECT

I don't believe you can use punctuation immediately after a quotation mark.

EDIT: ah, American English vs. real English

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quotation_mark#Typographical_considerations

Citation is the only place where you can even consider placing punctuation outside the quotation mark.

*Grammar nazi hat off*

Sorry, my wife is an editor so I hear all of it.

is this one of those things which like when they meet negate all of existence and bring about the end of the universe. Like how matter and anti-matter should never meet, time is fused with anti-time or a odd numbered Star Trek film actually being incredibly good?
