This crazy thing is called an Interrobang. It is my entry for the Chicago Manual of Style challenge in the HPKCHC. Being Ravenclaws, we generally tend to get excited and geek out over strange things. So why not academia and punctuation and grammar.

This is my very first pattern that I have created and I have to say, I am rather chuffed with it. Three cheers for me. Hip Hip Huzzah! Hip Hip Huzzah! Hip Hip Huzzah!

Some definitions...

The interrobang, interabang[1] (pronounced /ɪnˈtɛrəbæŋ/) or quesclamation mark, , is a nonstandard English-language punctuation mark intended to combine the functions of the question mark (also called the interrogative point) and the exclamation mark or exclamation point (known in printers' jargon as the bang). The glyph is a superimposition of those two marks. It is sometimes referred to as "the spork of punctuation" due to its internal duality.[citation needed]

This is so wonderfully nerdy. Are you going to do a matching bnagorretni?
