Just kidding.

I can’t tell you how many written conversations I’ve seen over the years where someone (usually me) made a sarcastic comment that was misunderstood to be wildly insulting, only to wish later for some type of sarcasm indicator. Enter the (ahem) SarcMark.

For a mere $1.99, a company calling itself Sarcasm, Inc. will sell you a specially-designed sarcasm punctuation mark. No, I’m not kidding. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait drop two bones for the rights to use a sarcasm squiggle that no one on the receiving end of my emails will recognize. OK, now I’m kidding.
