Bangus Interruptus: ‽ 
by Lenka Reznicek [permalink] 
Minds out of the gutter, dear readers. If you can read the symbol in the post title and these parentheses (‽), you're looking at the one and only "interrobang." In profile it resembles a stylized boxing glove in mid-flight; in censorful times, when one needs to go for the mild instead of the wild, a ‽ is (almost) as good as a carelessly flung WTF in polite company, with fewer characters to boot.

A hearty shout-out to Bob the Corgi for helping spread the word about a punctuation mark whose time has truly come.
