When punctuation attacks

See if anyone can guess WHY I will choose not to attend my company picnic:

If you guessed:

"Because Flamingo is the type of person who would refuse to attend any event advertised using 53 exclamation points on a single flier,"

you would be correct.

Also acceptable:

"Because the decorative paper was put in the printer upside down, making it look like those are dead bugs, and dead bugs do not put Flamingo in the Picnic Spirit."

I think this is a subtle attempt to get yourself fired.

"Supper and pop?" I feel different already, and I'm not even there yet...

Oh yeah. Better get used to it! Now just picture everybody around you saying that with accents stronger than mine!

We are only given a certain number of exclamation points and when we've used them all up, we die. It's a scientifically proven fact!!!! Damn...

(my "word verification" word was qgboo, a good name for a rapper or a kawaii Japanese cartoon character)

You should patent that, barn! Ever had an inclination toward rapping? Your first release could be titled "The Birth of Qgboo."

Incidentally, my word verification is "myfkmmi." So, could it actually be "The Birth of Qgboo....featuring Myfkmmi"?
