In some cartoons, the expression "&x?"@3+^%!" is used. I understand there is a name for this expression. Can anyone help?
If a very heavy rock falls on the foot of a cartoon character, they can't shout out the same expletives that real people probably would in such a situation, so the suggestion that the character is shouting a rude version of "Ouch. That really hurt" is shown by using symbols.
I don't know a specific name for the usage.
