Rating Punctuation

Hey all, I felt like doing this post since there was nothing better to do.

The Exclamation Point [!]
2/10
What more can I say. You stick it to the end of a sentence, it's instantly tacky. Such as:
"I know what you want you see!"

The Question mark [?]
10/10 (Z Choice)
It's ruggedness, versatility and great use makes it an all round excellent piece of punctuation.

The period [.]
8/10
Sometimes you dont know when to use it just right, but when you do, Oh boy will it sting! It's a great one, but sometimes, you feel it just doesn't belong sometimes.

The apostrophe [']
5/10
A confused little thing, it apparently is the substitute of missing letters in words: O'er, 'is, 'eer. Dont get me started on contractions and possessive use. Jane's, Bob's, Dave's, Don't, Ya'aaaaawl. What's up with that?

The quotation mark ["]
6/10
Useful alot especially when quoting people. haha! <-- tacky [!]

The Tilde mark [~]
3/10
Aparently, it makes several people horny, but in other cases, useless. But more entertaining than using the [!].

The backwards apostrophe [`]
1/10
Never used it before

The at symbol [@]
10/10 (Z Choice)
Super useful and good job with the swoosh thing.

The pound sign [#]
4/10
It comes up occasionally but other than that. Utterly useless, but useful when needed.

The dollar sign [$]
8/10
Who doesn't want this?

The Percent sign [%]
6/10
Kinda sexy with it's provocative "o's"

The carrot [^]
5/10
Unless i'm typing up math on the computer, I find this as useful as a pile of doggy doo doo

The And swooshy thing [&]
9/10
If you look carefully, it's like Rodin's thinker. It's a great piece of work. Especially with it's brother the "e" shaped and.

The Star [*]
10/10 (Z Choice)
Great for typing up emotions. *whimper* *fart*. Catch my drift? *fart*

The parentheses [(] [)]
7/10
Meh

The underscore [_]
8/10
Great for writing incredibly long email addresses and URLs

The dash [-]
8/10
Nothing fun about it

The plus [+]
6/10
We're deviating too far from real punctuation

The bracket [[] []]
8/10
Useful in that my bracket's are bracketed

The sexy bracket [{] [}]
9/10
Brackets with nipples! *laughs*

the back slash [\]
6/10
The button is hard to find.

The watchamacallit [|]
2/10
Not useful at all. This is the loner, black sheep, retard of the punctuation family.

The colon [:]
8/10
Hee hee... colon

The comma [,]
9/10
Useful, but dangerous if over used. I'm surprised i'm just writing about them now...

The arrow thingies [<] [>]
7/10
Somewhat useful, but other than that, you'll never use them. Ever. Except that one time involving that Chick we picked up in Yonkers...

The Slash [/]
10/10 (Z Choice)
The bigger, better brother of the \. It's better used and it's easier for my finger to find.

The semicolon [;]
(0/10)
Useless! I don't even know when to use you! You suck. You fail at life!

The upside down question mark [¿]
6/10
It's fun to throw off loved ones with this little toy

The Music note [♪] [♫]
10/10 (Z Choice)
Yay! Music nerd ooberness!

The Female symbol [♀]
9/10
Not punctuation...

The orange with cloves [☼]
♠/10

Ok, I think we're waaaay too far from the true definition of punctuation... Well, that about wraps it up. Goodnight and Happy Festivus
