I've had this thought for a while now, and you can thumb me down if you think I'm being obnoxious but

Is it me or does something lose a little bit of funny whenever an exclamation mark is added? It's usually so much funnier without and punctuation and just all caps. Just a thought.

To me it works a little like bottled laughter. It is telling you when something important happened. Also telling you when to laugh.

you're right i didn't read the excalmation mark the first time second time i did and it wasn't as funny or it's just the placebo effect. Point is you are right

Caps makes me immediate not enjoy the joke. At least the exclamation mark makes you wait until the end.

I think caps can be funny up to a measure, for example tumblr users over-abuse it.

You aren't entirely wrong, no.    
I mean, an excessive use of exclamation marks just completely removes the fun for me. 3 is enough...don't know if it's just nagging my ocd or something...   
   
But yeah, a single one does it.    
   
Caps on the other hand...too repetitive, and it's bad :P   
   
No, I don't know what's going on in the GIF, I just know that I find it funny and that it's unrelated as ****...

You're half right.
It's 4AM here and I'm too tired to explain this part of graphology.

I'll just say that is not only an impression.

Oh, midnight actually.
But I can do it.

For sure you can notice the difference between "Hi", "Hi!" and "Hi."
If I'd ask you which one is the angry one I'm sure you'll pick up well. And, of course, there is no such thing as "angry punctuation", there is just a subtle function of the Broca's Area that "sends" you a (correct) impression.

So, when you read a "!" your Broca's Area sends you the "image" of an enthusiastic guy who talks about the joke; the "." instead is a chilled punctuation, a sort of unnatural calm that doesn't fit with the situation [for that is more hilarious, like "hey look at him, his house is burning and he's just sitting there getting a coffee".]. Contrasting situations [or supposed contrasting, because as we said the "." is just a dot, it's your brain who tells you it is not] are funny because they break a mental rule and make us view the world in a different mode.

For that an image with "!" is not funny as ".", because "!" fits too much with the weird situation. Hope I was clear enough.

Thanks for the explanation, european (I supposed you're from Europe because I'm in Italy and it's midnight here too).

I actually made a picture where it's surrounded by red circles and red arrows. I would post it, but FJ had the GLORIOUS idea of making impossible for new accounts to post pictures in comments. I am dissapoint.
