Make Sarcasm Obvious: One $2 Method and Five Free Methods
Well this is useful The SarcMark is a punctuation mark to show sarcasm. Exclamations have !s, questions have ?s, and sarcastic remarks have a period with a spiral around it.
The makers are serious about the mark – the Telegraph says they're applying for a patent – but jokey about its uses. Thank god, because you can't be humorless if you'd like to teach the world to smirk.
While the $1.99 price tag deserves some derision, the SarcMark is marketed by this cute video of a sarcastic super...villain? hero? Caped lunatic who stamps a rune on a jogger lady's butt? I can't tell what's ironic any more!
Cute. But there are, of course, five perfectly good free ways to show someone you're being sarcastic:
- heh / LOL / ha / haha
- Dear sir, I am making a jest, or an ironic statement for humorous effect
- Be on 4chan
