The Sarcasm Symbol

ENTERTAINMENT - Ever had some confusion online or with your cellphone when someone fails to catch the sarcasm?

Well now with the SarcMark you can get your point across.

Launched this week by Sarcasm Inc. you can download it for use on Windows, Apple or your BlackBerry... no word when its available for iPhone users.

"We want to see if we can get it established as a punctuation mark," says co-creator Paul Sak, 63, who started the idea with his son Douglas, 35. Doug came up with the idea eight years ago when he sent an ironic email to an old college buddy and realized that it would be taken the wrong way. He figured the SarcMark would be the solution.

Kudos. That should save a few friendships.

The only problem is it costs $1.99 USD. Seriously guys? Why isn't it free?!

Wouldn't it make more sense to just have already available symbol(s) used instead?


I totally agree with the concept of a Sarcasm Mark, but I think sarcasm should be free.
