So Scot can see the punctuation in the dialogue boxes, but Mullet Boss can't.

Interrobang sounds like what happens when an interrogation subject gets all sweaty with her interrogator...

July 28, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterexosus

Interrobang should be a superhero name.

July 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAlan T.

AWESOME!!! Totally awesome!! I think I use interrobangs?! (And I know I will not be the only one doing this.)

July 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterVictoria

You call that an interrobang‽

July 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBrian Danger Hicks

One of your best, Scott. "Time to fire one of his kids" was brilliant?!

July 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMiguel

As usual, I've been getting it exactly backwards for at least 20 years!?

July 28, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterdac

I never know whether the exclamation mark or the question mark goes first. ?!?

July 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCat Ballou

Dude, the interrobang is my favorite punctuation mark! You made my day! How do you keep coming up with such off the wall comics that are nonetheless hilarious‽

July 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle

Mullet Boss seems like the kind of guy who interrobangs everyone he talks to.
Does that make any sense?!

July 29, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterkobold

Wow. After discovering this strip through Cracked, I went back and started from number one in the archives. I must say, Scott I rank your comic up there with, if not past, Penny Arcade and Questionable Content. Keep up the great work, you have a reader for life!

Note from Scott: Thanx! That's always good to hear!

Ha! I just learned about the interrobang yesterday: serendipitous, if only because I don't have to look it up now.

July 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTroy G

there is name for it ?!

July 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSam

I seem to remember from my chess playing days.
!? oh what the heck...

July 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMike Geordie Brown

You spell "defense" the British way, Scott?

July 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJared

Awesome! Technically, the interrobang is not ?!, but it is this: ‽, a superimposition of the two marks. Not being on a keyboard has a way of sidelining nonstandard punctuation marks :-D

Love the strip!

July 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterEllery

I’m with Brian—you don’t seriously think that’s an interrobang‽‽

Anyway, awesome strip, as I’ve come to expect from BI. :-) Panel 2 was my favourite.

July 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAankhen

I never know whether the exclamation mark or the question mark goes first.

Depends on whether you're being questionably emphatic or emphatically questionable.

July 29, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterrea

Hey there... I'm a long-time reader from another webcomic group. I'm with Interrobang Studios, so I had to swing by and drop a hug! Huzzah for obscure punctuation!

Note from Scott: Thanks for stopping by?!

July 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBlake

Yeah, well. What about the rhetorical question mark؟

July 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMattF

Seriously, Scott. You are now reaching new heights. Not only are your comics wildly entertaining, but you are actually now incorporating educational aspects as well?! Amazing. Is there no end to your brilliance?

July 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterG W

I now find myself wondering how Victor Borge would've read this strip aloud.

July 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterQuokka

I'd like to a great use of emoticons in everyday text, but we need a lot more.

How about a 'go-fcuk-yourself' emoticon?!

July 29, 2011 | Unregistered Commentergoosemonster

Question #1: How many of you immediately googled "Interrobang"?

Question #2: On finding it in Wikipedia, how many of you chose to look at the history with the suspicion it was added with/for the comic?

Question #3: On finding it had years of history on Wikipedia... how many of you are still suspicious of the whole thing?

Wondering if it was just me doing this...

July 29, 2011 | Unregistered Commentergekkobear

Oh, I'm always emphatically questionable! I think?!

July 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCat Ballou

Interrobang sounds like something out of a police procedural porn. I like it...

July 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKJ

interrobang sounds like some new, weird type of sexual harassment?!

July 29, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterdeimoscom

No George Hrab fans?

¿! Does nobody expect the Spanish interrobang ?!

July 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTerraHertz

Thank you for informing the world of the best punctuation ever. I've been using the superimposed mark in my novels ever since I read the Barry Trotter books, where the Harry Potter parody, rather than having a lightning scar, has an interrobang.

July 30, 2011 | Unregistered Commenter42bens

Or POP SQRRRK POP PHWOOOH as Victor Borge would have said.

Shouldn't the last word balloon have, if not an interrobang, then at least a question mark? Or perhaps one of those ironic/rhetorical question marks mentioned earlier?

Great stuff, as usual, Scott.

July 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterFilthy McMonkey

Interrobangs are by far my favorite punctuation ever.

July 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGreg

Oh my gosh. Pure gold. I laughed hard after every panel, and learned a new word in the process!

July 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterToast

Wow, Scott. You just made me LOL in the middle of the night and wake my whole house up. Panel three is just awesome. I thought I was going to pee myself I laughed so hard. I'm so glad I found your comic on cracked. I've gone through the entire archive and love your work. Keep them coming.

I didn't know that was called an interrobang until just now. It sounds like a name Vespa would assign to one of its more expensive scooters. Maybe just a regular Vespa with turquoise paint and an iPod cradle in the handlebar. Hipsters would lose their damn minds over that.

August 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRick

I always hear Mullet Boss in my head voiced by Jeff Foxworthy. It adds a whole new dimension to the character.

August 2, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJane

It's real?!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interrobang

August 4, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMatt

It's not technically an interrobang unless you combine them. !? Is not an interrobang.
