Submission + - New Mark to make /sarcasm obsolete /sarcasm (

kandela writes: The Telegraph is reporting that for a mere $1.99 you can download a new punctuation mark that will revolutionise 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.

Use the Force, Luke.
