The questionable exclamation mark

Many years ago our Municipal Corporation launched a cleanliness campaign with the slogan
“HELP! KEEP MUMBAI CLEAN”
Seeing this message plastered boldly over bus stops and on the garbage trucks, I always questioned the position of the exclamation mark.
Did this message warn us or did it implore us to keep the city clean?
Whatever the punctuation mark, the message is lost because there’s no help coming in keeping the city any cleaner.

A granny who always sees the humour in life and tries to do things differently. When others make cupcakes, this granny makes banana fritters. When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!
