An emphatic NO!

JOOP!

Chatty Kathy:

German designer Wolfgang Joop’s bid to have a punctuation mark trademarked [sic] for his Joop! clothing and perfume company has been denied by European Union judges. Joop applied to register two versions of an exclamation point: the first is a simple exclamation and the other is inside a rectangular frame.

Can’t blame him for trying!

Say — maybe he can get a registration for WRITING IN ALL CAPS INSTEAD?!
