Just in case it's not obvious

Some wit in Michigan has decided that we've all been missing a punctuation/symbol for sarcasm and want to sell it to us for US $1.99.

From SarcMark
Stupid Idea? Think About It!

With the spoken word, we use our tone, inflection and volume to question, exclaim and convey our feelings. The written word has question marks and exclamation points to document those thoughts, BUT sarcasm has NOTHING! In today’s world with increasing commentary, debate and rhetoric, what better time could there be than NOW, to ensure that no sarcastic message, comment or opinion is left behind Equal Rights for Sarcasm - Use the SarcMark


If you have to explain sarcasm, then it has defeated the intent. If somebody can't tell, then you may as well hit them with a wet fish.

What next? Comedians having to explain their punch lines?
