    Josh Greenman says he wants to create a new sarcasm point and, in almost the same ‘virtual breath’ he says that the English language musn’t evolve with Spanglish.

    Why then, does he choose the Spanish inverted exclamation mark as his sarcasm point? He could’ve at least come up with a more original punctuation mark!
