WHY, IT’S A MOTHERFUCKING INTERROBANG.
Not only does it have a sweet-ass name, but it’s a fucking amazing piece of punctuation.
Does your teacher bitch at you for using a “?” and a “!”? Well then, this is the thing for you! YOU JUST PULL THIS BITCH OUT, AND WIPE THE GRIN OFF THAT MOTHER-FUCKER’S FACE. Watch as their mind is blown that you’re using famous punctuation from the NINETEEN SIXTIES.
True. Fucking. Facts. This glorious character was invented by Martin K. Spekter in 1962. That’s right, even its creator had a bad-ass name.
BUT. ALAS. THIS MIND-BLOWING, ELEPHANT ORGASMING PUNCTUATION NEVER GOT TO BE DECLARED “OFFICIAL”. That’s why it doesn’t show up in all your fancy ass computer fonts.
SO YOU KNOW WHAT I SAY‽ I SAY WE BRING BACK THE INTERROBANG. USE IT WHEN YOU CAN. SPREAD THE WORD. RE-BLOG THIS SHIT.
For a while I wanted an interrobang tattoo. I still kind of do.
I kind of like the so-called “irony mark”, too. Problematically, since it was supposed to indicate sarcasm as well, I would probably never stop using it on social networking sites… especially considering the number of times I get into an argument with people who believe superstitious or pseudoscientific nonsense. Or who repost infamous chain mail.
