    A new punctuation mark for sarcasm = $2.00

    The Sarc-Mark - NewsChannel 9 WSYR

    There is now a punctuation you can use if you want to be sure your sarcasm comes through in your emails, etc.

    Company called "sarcasm" has come up with "THE SARC-MARK."

    It's a dot inside a spiral line and supposed to be used at the end of a sentence if you're concerned the irony of your message will be lost.

    All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

    I agree. I just love websites that are well thought out, intuitive, and easy to navigate will little effort. This one is a winner for sure!

    Someone at one time had come up with what was called the Delta Sarc , essentially the Delta symbol with a period inside it.

    Another useful punctuation mark was called the InterroBang, which was an exclamation mark superimposed over a question mark. Used in place of "?!?"

    I've invented a new word, called "stupid" and you can download it for free. Merry Christmas.

    "Five and nine?"
