a while ago i saw one duck raping another one in a checkers parking lot. of course this is just how they procreate and you can't assign labels like 'rape' realistically, but i digress. it's pretty unsettling.

Yeah I called it rape because I am a human (for real) and look at things from a human perspective.

Someday when ducks become civilised I will be exonerated, nay extolled!

IMO the best way to do it would be two commas like, "I will be exonerated, nay, extolled!" You could also leave it the way it is and it is clear, but changing it to, "I will be exonerated nay, extolled!" would be weird.

I will be exonerated; nay, extolled!

two independent clauses (well "nay, extolled" assumes the "I will be" from the first sentence) that are closely related with a conjunction in between them

Deep Fried Fruit Loops and the tator-tot boat sound intriguing. However with my gluten sensitivity I would've been heading to el baño pretty quickly.

semi-colons are the best punctuation but only if you use them perfectly

then bradbury is as wrong as you are. it is incorrect across the spectrum of mainstream academic style guides. you personally are free to decide it's correct for you because language is fluid and as long as you are communicating in a way that can be understood by the audience, there are no "rules." However, as far as convention and authorities of linguistic standardization go, you absolutely cannot put a parenthesis inside a parenthesis and be grammatically correct.
