Thanks to all the witty, literate, and punctuationally minded people who entered our upside-down question mark naming contest, which was a great success: We got more than 60 entries, and we’re still tallying up our picks.

In fact, we’re at a bit of an impasse. So we thought we’d create a poll, with the Emdashes crew’s absolute favorite entries, and let you determine the ultimate winner. In the spirit of the Democratic Convention’s forest of ticker tape, your voice will be heard! Have a great Labor Day, and watch this space for the opportunity to vote well before November—and for something we can all believe in: giving mysterious marks a (satisfying) name of their own.


Have the results for the upsidedown question mark been counted yet? Labor Day has long since passed.
