Apart, Mercy and Pippi aren't that astonishing, but when you put them together, watch out!!! While I know this website is all about excessive exclamation, my favorite part of this photo is "Their Credentials Consist of: Love Love Love Love and More Love." Cat people are awesome.

You'd think that if you could scream "LOST DOG!!!!!!" that loud, you would be able to call your dog from just about anywhere they could have run away to, and they'd hear you. Did you ever think that maybe he doesn't want to come back because you're always yelling?

Is it really this astonishing that handcrafted jewelry & beads by "JoAnn herself" would be sold at affordable prices? Maybe I just don't know how important this JoAnn lady is, being that I'm a guy and not really plugged into the jewelry world. But, if she's selling her homemade goods in "the living room," I'm going to guess that affordable prices should have been implied in this situation.

I don't know why, but it cracked me up to picture this person printing out an 8.5X11 sheet with like 50 of these excessively exclamated statements, and then cutting them all out and taping them all around the office as little reminders to keep those damn lights off. Dedication to the cause of excessive exclamation!! Also, it makes me a little nervous to turn the lights on when I feel like I need them!

I love trying to fit the actual rules of exclamation points into the various pictures we get. While I understand that the apartment manager was trying to show her excitement about wanting to speak with you with this unnecessary exclamation, I like to think it falls more under the more appropriate use of showing astonishment, as in, if she actually looked forward to speaking with you, it would be quite astonishing!

You know how F. Scott Fitzgerald said, "An exclamation point is like laughing at your own jokes"? I think this little bumper sticker would fall under that category. No amount of excessive exclamation points can make this little sticker funny enough to slap on your vehicle...unless you drive a beat up pickup, I guess.
This pizza shop seems so serious about strongly commanding that their customers not skimp, that it would make me nervous to eat there. I'd feel so worried that maybe I was skimping without realizing it, and I wouldn't want to face the consequences.

Not only is this our first example of a quintuple exclamation point, but I also appreciate the first line of the memo, "All employees with Kaiser insurance is eligible..." Someone with that kind of grammar isn't going to get my attention, even with all those commanding punctuations.

I officially have a new favorite. It has everything! It is passive aggressive, it is hilariously directed at a specific "Gentleman" rather than all the gentlemen who may frequent the facilities, and it has the most exclamation points of any offering we have had so far. Classic.

A nice little handwritten triple. I would think the first step to reconciliation with a neighbor would be to keep your cool. Having this kind of emotional outburst on the instructions for reconciliation with a neighbor just doesn't seem like a good place to start.

I know you don't want food, drinks, pets, or pictures taken in your store, but do you have to get so crazy demanding about it? I guess the triple exclamation actually doesn't help deter us criminals, as I took the picture, which is clearly against the store rules!!!

It may be a little hard to see, but almost every statement, sentance, and word are followed by an exclamation point on this little flyer. It's as if the period button was broken on the person's keyboard. Classic example of truly excessive exclamation.

There are two things I like about this one. First, the exclamation point could be appropriate, if it represents the owner's anger about having to continuously remind people to bring their own cups because the coffee shop doesn't have any of their own. Second, I appreciate that the exclamation point is used after the acronym, but not in the explanation of the acronym underneath.
