Today I was able to successfully use postmodern parentheses* in a work email! The lucky word was (f)utility.
*third- anyone who thinks putting parentheses in a title to turn one word into two, thereby demonstrating how fucking postmodern they are, should be taken out back and shot. curt's example: "hype(er text)." most common example for people who've read too much beaudrillard/gender theory/foucault: "(re)imagining the fill-in-the-blank." parentheses do not a fresh idea make.
