Punctuation lesson for the day: Interrobang (‽)

I want to see more of this little punctuation mark in commercial copy...
The interrobang (/ɪn'tɛrəbæŋ/) (‽) is a rarely used, nonstandard English-language punctuation mark intended to combine the functions of the question mark (also called the interrogative point) and the exclamation mark (known in printers' jargon as the bang). The typographical
character is a superimposition of those two marks. The same effect is
also frequently achieved by placing the exclamation point before or
after the question mark; e.g., "How could you do such a thing!?" or
"How could you do such a thing?!"
