I admire the exclamation point. Of all the sentence enders, it has the most profound effect. While a question mark causes a weird uncomfortable turn in the tone? A period is just boring. But an exclamation point! WOW!!!! How amazing!
The english major in me wishes that there were more punctuation marks like the exclamation point. I want to create a system of punctuation that has new endpoints to completely change the tone of your sentence into variations ranging from loud and angry to obscure variations like "growling like you have laryngitis and replacing your r's with w's".
I originally wanted to do this by using the red-headed stepchild of fonts, wingdings. But I realize that most of those symbols are two complex to handwrite, already have meanings, and they often change on you the minute you copy and paste them somewhere else. Useless.
So instead I'll just name the marks. Possibly draw them later.

The Feariod-Gives the sentence a dry, frightening, murderous and psychotic tone, said with wide eyes and no laughter. "I killed your parents".
The Bleariod-For blue lies (read a spectrum of lies if you do not know of my lie color-coding system).
The Ejaculation Point-A mark to imply that the sentence sounded like you said it during an orgasm.
The Agitation Point-Pretty self explanatory. Loudly and angrily, or loudly and sarcastically.
The Sequestion Mark-The tone of the sentence takes on a tone of a pass, seduction, peer pressure, or the soliciting of a prostitute.
The Gravitation Point-only for long sentences, implying that you start saying the sentence at the lowest possible tone your voice can possibly go, or the lowest possible volume. Then you crescendo so that by the time you reach the gravitation point you are either squealing or screaming.
The Descension Point-opposite of the gravitation point.
The Fuddulation Point-everything is said in an Elmer Fudd voice.
The Rhestion Mark-Rhetorical question mark. The world would be less confusing, truly. Especially on instant messenger.
The Excremation Point-Implying that you said the sentence in the same strained tone of voice one requires when taking a particularly large and difficult shit. Good for breakups.

Hopeless Cause Tuesdays: Birds without Air

The biggest privelege that god bestowed on our feathered friends is the gift of flight. It is a gift we give to our superheroes. It is a gift we dream about. We even get so jealous that we build giant metal birds that smell like freeze dried coffee and inhalants and suck real birds into their engines.

But what about the birds who remain on the ground? Chickens? Penguins? These are the unfortunate birds who can't fly. It is a horrible evolutionary mis-step. I feel as though if we can develop vision correction surgery and make giant hunks of metal fly, there should be no moral qualms about giving birds the gift of flight via robotic enhancement. Perhaps chickens would be less ill tempered if they got a piece of the sky a few hours a day before being asked to systematically give birth or be killed for delicious culinary purposes.

And penguins...well, the picture should speak for itself.

Support this cause. Because without flight, what is the point of birds?

Creative comebacks/ insults

How many times have you wanted to have a decent comeback, but all you can manage is a half hearted FU? The art of the comeback isn't so much how much you one-up the person...sometimes you can just have a comeback that is so bizarre that it completely diffuses the original insult. When delivered quickly and confidently without stumbling, these comebacks can be just crazy enough to work. Or at the very least, get you a few laughs.
Mix and match columns A B and C, edit grammar where needed.

You can
You can go
Oh yeah? Well (you are)
Your mom likes to
I hope you

Suck on
Screw a
Bury your face in
Manhandle a
Spoon a
Get cornholed by

C. (the fun part...pretty much anything can go here. The drunker your agressor the weirder your comeback can be while still being succesful)
Elephant seal
Lithuanian midget
Episcopalian missionary
Infected pigeon anus
Rosie O'Donnell
Whale wang
Vat of Crisco
Wasp Nest

I hope you get cornholed by an elephant seal.
You can go motorboat a wasp nest.
Your mom likes to manhandle Rosie O'Donnell.
Go suck on an infected pigeon anus.
You can spoon a lithuanian midget.

Shout out to readers I met at NY Comic con. Now that I know you exist I'm going to update a hell of a lot more!

I want to buy a starbucks and keep it the same except replace all of the sign with "Aarrrbucks" and put eyepatches on all of the signs.
