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."
