The Interrobang
In British English we have the Exclamation Mark. In American English this is called a Bang. In American English they have merged the interrogative point (question mark) and the bang (exclamation mark) into an informal device called an Interrobang.  It is a cool (but nonstandard) punctuation.
This is what it looks like:
Interrogative point (?) (British - question mark) +  bang (!) (British - exclamation mark) =  interrobang
The interrobang is used in an emphatic rhetorical question. There is no known British use of this punctuation symbol.
