Happy National Punctuation Day! ; )

This Sept. 24, like the previous 10, is National Punctuation Day. ’Tis a time for merrily gargling our hyphens and luxuriating in bathtubs full of em dashes, for braiding parentheses in our hair and giving our suitors octothorpes as love tokens after we dance on clouds of ampersands.

My boss showed me this this morning. Personally, I’m still waiting for the campaign to bring interrobangs into widespread use, but I guess I’ll keep waiting for a while. Until then, I’ll snuggle up with all the Oxford commas that I can’t use in my writing at work (see: AP Style comma rules).

But seriously, who doesn’t love a good interrobang?!
