"*"


That's a lot of punctuation in a row. My dad said I should make a joke about Roger Maris, but I can't land it. Feel free to make your own. Thanks, Hayley.

Yeah, it's quoting the instance of the asterisk above. I think it's fine.

It's not necessary to put quotes around an asterisk. The asterisk would be enough.

, but since the usage is a linguistic symbol defined in a sentence, the quotation marks are proper.

Punctuation Win.
