T-Rex: We need a new punctuation mark.
T-Rex: The SUB EXCLAMATION
T-Rex: For when you're even less excited than normal, and a full stop just seems too over the top.
Utahraptor: I propose "<a flaccid exclamation mark>"
Utahraptor: I am so excited by this idea<flaccid exclamation mark>
T-Rex: Hah. That's funny<flaccid exclamation mark>

While writing this, a friend commented that it was weird that T-Rex would come up with a punctuation mark that he would actually never use himself, since he's so excited all the time.
