Do you know what this is?
This is the latest in punctuation. Move over question mark, see you later PERIOD – meet the Sarcasm mark. That’s right, a punctuation mark to end all of your sarcastic remarks and ensure that everyone knows you are not being serious.
MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich., Jan. 12 (UPI) — A Michigan company announced the release of software Tuesday that introduces new punctuation to the typed word: The sarcasm mark.
Sarcasm Inc. of Washington Township said the SarcMark, which resembles an open circle with a dot in the center, can be installed on computers via a program that can be downloaded from sarcmark.com for $1.99.
This brings up some very interesting questions. Like -How lame are the people that need that mark to tell them they are encountering sarcasm? What if this really catches on? Will I be able to write a paragraph without using one? And most importantly, why didn’t my family think of this first, since it’s right up our alley?? We need to be more creative and pay attention to our natural gift for the zinger.
Between this and the “I’m with Stupid” t-shirts, we could have been millionaires.
