Dr. Vallicella and Dr. Hodges both write blog posts in which an "s" is surrounded by parentheses. See here for Dr. V's post, and here for Dr. H's.

Wherefore the urge to lock the "s" inside concave walls? I suspect that the letter "s" can be rather unruly, so it's only natural to want to take it aside every now and then to give it a proper beating, followed by strict confinement until it comes to its (s)en(s)e(s).

I often ask my reader(s) for comments - few give any. It feels to me like a running joke for how few readers -even just one - I have.

People are always threatening to kick some S. Well, let them try! They'll first have to kick through those shields!
