One of the guys, Paul Sak, behind the SARCMARK tells me there is a punctuation mark for sarcasm in Ethiopian and a rarely used one for irony in French. So why not one for the English language? He also thinks that sarcasm is less anti-social than in previous generations, more on the humourous side now, but a regular happy face just doesn't do it justice. Talk to me...unsarcastically...are you pro or con sarcasm? Waddya think about the need for something like Sarcmark (which costs $1.99 by the way)?
