A fully grown man who chose not to return to the eye clinic to have his second eye lasered because he found having his first eye done to be an “unpleasant experience”? A man who now has to drive with one eye closed and switch eyes to check his map, whilst hoping beyond hope that he doesn’t get those switches mixed up? Not to mention the bouts of dizziness and regular falling flat on his face?This is just one example that the exclamation mark is a necessary feature of humour being presented in the written form – and, for the most part, is not nearly used enough.In a nutshell, that is the purpose of this book.

It isn’t a literary help guide or a punctuation masterclass, but merely a tongue-in-cheek look at how and when exclamation marks could or should be used in the written form- especially in the humour genre. Examples from general life and popular culture- from movies to books to music, are used to back up a belief that the exclamation mark is grossly underused.You may agree, you may not but, hopefully, you’ll have good fun reading all the quirky examples that make up the argument.
