This blog was originally started as a thread on the forum pages of an animal rescue site. Now it's here!

The articles you find in here are purely for entertainment (yours and mine) and (with one or two exceptions) are all tongue-in-cheek chronicles of the World (my bit, anyway) as I see it.
No disrespect is intended towards anyone unless I make a mistake and make it too obvious.

Interrobanging: Again, Cos I'm SOOOOO busy!

Have you ever interrobanged

You may well have done when describing, for example, a lollapalooza or ninnyhammer.

I, to my shame, did so whilst answering an email which contain the word callithumpian.

I fired off a quick emailed query regarding said word to the originator of the email and 
I used a multiple interrobang.

I kicked myself ,almost as soon as the email departed my laptop, as realisation
dawned that someone somewhere would know there was a word out there that 
I didn't know!

I do now!

    ah, so that's what it's called. But I do mine like this, didn't you know?! Where'd you get the combined one? It looks very stylish and in these days of verbal interwebcoms the need for increased emphasis demands such inventions!!! (see, we need one for dub-trip emph)...

    1. I goolgled it and selected a graphic that I liked. It was, so I've heard, included on early typewriters, but I've never actually found one on a keyboard. I agree though, we could you one!

  2. There are so many wonderful words out there but ever time I include them in a manuscript my editor chops them out.

    1. I shall slap your over zealous editor should I ever meet him/her.

  3. I don't know what it is either! Sounds kinky!

    1. It's only ever kinky when you try to Interrobang yourself!
