Did You Know About the Sarcmark?

Did you know about the sarcmark?

Have you heard about the newest punctuation mark? It's called the "sarcmark" and helps to identify when you are being sarcastic. This is especially helpful when communicating through electronic devices. The mark looks like a spiral with a dot in the center. Kind of hard to explain but you can Google it to find an image. I don't know if the trend will catch on or not. But I am sure we'll start seeing the sarcmark appear in our electronic communications before too long!
