“It comes at the end of the sentence…” (139 eats, Shoots & leaves)

 This may not seem that important but why does it come at the end? Is it just me or do you have to read every sentence that uses this mark twice because at the beginning of the sentence you can not tell it is full of excitement until you finally see the end point, then your like oh wait let me read that again. Every other punctuation tells you what to do and when to do it. For example, a period tells you where the end of the sentence is a comma tells you exactly where to pause, and semicolon tells you where to pause as well. The explanation point is at the end of the sentence but it really means read this previous statement with excitement. I think some how someone should revise the system of the explanation point and put it at the beginning of the sentence.
