Excessive Exclamation!!

I came across a great blog -- Excessive Exclamation!!  The blog is dedicated to posting photographs of signs that are excessively exclamatory.  For example:

"Please Pay FIRST!!"

Pleasepayfirst

Or my personal favorite:

"You are weerd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Youareweerd

The blog exposes something approaching an epidemic of ! usage and quotes F. Scott Fitzgerald's observation that "[a]n exclamation point is like laughing at your own jokes."  Visitors are encouraged to submit their own photos.  Submit yours today!!!!!

Never mind photographs of signs. Exclamation points are all but mandatory in email correspondence. If you don't use an exclamation point (or a smiley face), you sound depressed.
