this is such a great idea.

There is now a punctuation mark that you can use to indicate that you’re being sarcastic. It costs $1.99.

This is a joke, right? If you need a symbol to indicate when you’re being sarcastic, then you suck at being sarcastic (or your friends suck for not comprehending sarcasm). Telling someone you’re being sarcastic kills all the fun; it’s like when someone makes you explain a joke to them:

“Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested and the frog dies of it.” [E.B. White]

 And more importantly, as E.Lee so wisely pointed out, “That thing doesn’t even LOOK like sarcasm!”
