a: Exclamation point ~
b: the horn in your car

What: "The exclamation point is like the horn in your car-use it only when you have to. A chorus of exclamation points says two things about your writing: First, you're not confident that what you're saying is important, so you need bells and whistles to get attention. Second, you don't know a really startling idea when you see one" (Woe Is I, p. 142).
