Finally a Way to Communicate Sarcasm in Emails

So I am thrilled to finally hear this news (first from Mashable and then today in The Wall Street Journal) that there is actually an emoticon called the SarcMark  that I can buy that will tell humorless readers of my emails that I am being sarcastic.  So if I insert this handy dandy thing (available for $1.99) I won’t have to risk ticking someone off (I really did love your new haircut!)  or having someone take me literally (I didn’t mean that I actually wanted to see your vacation pictures again).  It is definitely more sophisticated looking than silly smiley faces or winks cobbled together with punctuation which I’m morally opposed to just on principal that adults shouldn’t need to add them to sentences.

On a larger note, this should help women like me tell the Whole Truth and actually be understood versus misinterpreted.
