It’s time for JRE’s Word of the Day!
Grawlix: typographical symbols standing for profanities, which appear in [comic] dialogue balloons in the place of actual dialogue.
For example… if you were woken on a sunny Saturday morning by the sound of jackhammers working right outside your f*cking window what the hell is going on out there oh wait they’re digging up the pool and this is going to continue for three months can I break my lease yet, you might set your Facebook status as follows:
Josh awakens to the sound of jackhammers outside his bedroom window. %^$@#+*!!!
And that’s how you use grawlix. Any @$&%*# questions?
