Poo - I'm a dash.

I was seriously hoping to be an interrobang. So underappreciated in the punctuation world.

The interrobang, ‽, 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 typographical character is a superimposition of those two marks.

A sentence ending with an interrobang either (1) asks a question in an excited manner, (2) expresses excitement or disbelief in the form of a question, or (3) asks a rhetorical question.

For example:

How much did you spend on those shoes‽
You're going out with whom‽
They did what‽

Use of an interrobang or combinations of question marks and exclamation marks is not necessary in English as an exclamation mark is sufficient.[citation needed] However, the interrogative character of a sentence may not be apparent and may be lost with only an exclamation mark.
