    Default Design a new punctuation mark?!

    I was at lunch with some friends and the term WTF?! came up. Anyway, I was upset that there was no single punctuation mark to express ?! and I decided it was time for something new.

    The challenge: develop (MS Paint?) a new punctuation mark that unifies the ?! into one single mark.

    ?! -->

    Great thread idea!

    My suggestion comes from the language of comic strips, where straight lines emanating from the head of a character often indicate surprise. To fit in normal typefaces, the question mark portion of this new punctuation would have to be shorter than usual to accommodate the lines. I'm not sure it would catch on because it takes more than a instant to draw, but I'm just throwing it out there.

    Everybody have fun tonight. Everybody Wang Chung tonight.

    Sorry Edahn, but this one has already been done.



    Edit: Wait a minute, I just rained on the parade, didn't I? Link removed.

    But not the symbol.
