the sarcasm punctuation mark - š
   according to wikipedia, "The grapheme Š, š (S with caron) is used in various contexts, usually denoting the voiceless postalveolar fricative. In the International Phonetic Alphabet this sound is denoted with ʃ, but the lowercase š is used in the Americanist phonetic notation, as well as in the Uralic Phonetic Alphabet. It represents the same sound as the Turkic Ş."
   i call bullshit! maybe five people on earth use it like it's supposed to be used. i say we hijack and recycle š to denote sarcasm when used in text based commentary in emails, on web sites, social networks, such as twitter and facebook, and in any other of your sarcastic writing endeavors.
   for example: you might type, "i would love to go to church with you." by all appearances, the reader mistakenly thinks you really want to go to church with them, even though you are serving up a heaping helping of sarcastic diatribe. when you add the š at the end, "i would love to go to church with you.š" is easily read as, "i would love to go to church with you when hell freezes over".
   brrr, can you feel the cold sting of sarcasm?
   now many of you will say, "it's not officially recognized". well, neither was stupid LOL and that never stopped every 12 year old girl and guys that want to be 12 year old girls from using it to death. i've heard LOL is in some dictionaries now and that is just wrong.
   to easily stick a š to the end of your sarcastic comment, press and hold the (alt) key and press the numbers 0154 (alt0154) on the number pad, as the top row numbers will not work this. if you have a cell phone, call your provider and demand a š key! maybe one day, every device will have the new sarcasm key.
   join me on the vanguard to a new way of communicating textural sarcastic smartassedness.

i appreciate your continued patronage.š
