Not in the OED. Apparently, it's a very recent neologism.

Did you really open some physical edition of OED and look this up?

do you put a little hash mark next to every word you've looked up

also...However, it has a synonym, epicaricacy, that appeared in a small number of 18th century dictionaries but has failed to enjoy the same success.
You need to expand your dictionary collections it's looking like


this is a cool new thing I learned
Interrobang: - a punctuation mark ‽
sounds like a good band name to me

There is in fact a band called Interrobang and it has two members of Chumbawamba in it

http://interrobangband.co.uk/

Found out that the ?!?! was an interrobang at a pub quiz and then adopted it as the name of the team… as we either knew a question!! Or had no clue??

If you read nothing else today...

Opening graf: Noted local criminal Mark McCloskey played host to a barbecue/political rally on Sunday afternoon, drawing tens of admirers to the sweltering parking lot of a closed outlet mall in St. Louis County to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the time he pulled a gun on a crowd of people who otherwise would never have noticed or cared he existed.

Clippy's. Do you think its easy being an anthropomorphic paper clip? To have the sex drive of a human but the apparent lack of genitals? Walk one mile in that eunich office supply's (proverbial) shoes and tell me how you like it.
