Did you have fun celebrating National Punctuation Day? Good, me, too! Here’s a little something-something to remember the day by until next year:
How awesome is the Godzilla Mark? I can picture many ways it could be useful. For instance, when I was in elementary school, I had this teacher who I loved but who was also a little scary. And nothing was scarier than when you got some worksheet back with nothing written on it but SEE ME in big red letters. You knew instantly you had screwed up. But wouldn’t it be even more awesomely scary with a Godzilla Mark? SEE ME <GODZILLA MARK>? I’m scared just thinking about it.
Also, I could see it coming in handy in my work as an editor. I’m thinking, for example, that no one would be tempted to ask you questions such as “Are these real edits or just your personal preference?” (true story) if they got their articles back with INSERT COMMA <GODZILLA MARK> and PLEASE LEARN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ITS AND IT’S <GODZILLA MARK>. Oh, the places we could go with this.
