The New Sarcasm Punctuation Mark 19

kandela writes "The Telegraph is reporting that for a mere $1.99 you can download a new punctuation mark that will revolutionize communication online. The SarcMark, described as 'a dot inside a single spiral line,' is to be used just like a question mark or exclamation mark to indicate sarcasm. And for those worried that this company's unique invention may be shamelessly copied by eager and unscrupulous grammarians – grammarians being the type to quickly adopt new ideas without heed to proper procedure – fear not, the Michigan based company has applied for a patent to protect their invention."
