Couldn't resist sharing this with you.

Incidentally, typographic slang for an exclamation mark/point is a dog's
cock. Perhaps that influenced the author:

"Why don't you help Terry to a shower," he said, "later, I have
some more questions I want to put to her."

"Why is a shower important?" Mavis pouted.

She frowned at Phil's wide grin.

"I am to use my exclamation point on her again and I want a nice, clean,
perfumy sentence to punctuate."
