Am I being sarcastic;?

Am I being sarcastic;? I agree with Josh. We need a new punctuation mark to indicate sarcasm; I say this because it would help me communicate with many of the irony-challenged non-regular readers of this weblog who sometimes find themselves lost in this obscure corner of the blogosphere.

    It is a struggle to communicate without tone of voice all my thoughts upon reading this post. I guess that is the point, no?

    I’ll try.

    He is NOT serious.
    Umm, wouldn’t a punctuation mark to indicate sarcasm return the sarcasm to the realm of the literal and therefore defeat its purpose????
    Umm, oh.

    Never mind.

    ;You raise a good point, Laura;;;

    Was he serious or sarcastic with his suggestion?

    ;If we had a punctuation mark to let us know, we could not have to wonder;

    Until then, we’ll have to ; ) do something else, wink-wink. (just joking)
