World Peace Can’t Be Far Behind Now That the Sarcasm Mark Has Been Created
Apparently some company in Michigan (the place best known for…you guessed it, sarcasm) has gone through the arduous task of creating the sarcasm mark, and offering a computer program (for $1.99) to provide the ability to use the holy grail of punctuation, the ‘SarcMark’. It’s apparently a half closed circle with a dot in the middle (very nice ¡!).
“Statements have the period. Questions have the question mark. Exclamations have the exclamation mark. When you see the newest punctuation mark for sarcasm, you’ll know the writer of that sentence doesn’t literally mean what they’re writing; they’re being sarcastic,” Sarcasm Inc. said in a release.
Good job guys! Your selfless act will pay for itself at $1.99 at a time. I am sure it wouldn’t have been possible to use something like ‘¡!’ instead (something that is freely available, which everyone should start using, by the way).
This new development should help all the people who think that the epitome of sarcasm is saying “Nice job!” to punctuate all their sarcastic gems with the sure to be epic SarcMark.
