Under construction ...

There are so many examples. For the time being, please relax and enjoy the few curiosities already on show:

"Ich habe vielleicht etwas Weltverbesserndes. Mein Leben ist eine giving-story. Ich habe verstanden, daß man contemporary sein muß, daß man future-Denken haben muß. Meine Idee war, die hand-tailored-Geschichte mit neuen Technologien zu verbinden. Und für den Erfolg war mein coordinated concept entscheidend, die Idee, daß man viele Teile einer collection miteinander combinen kann. Aber die audience hat das alles von Anfang an auch supported. Der problembewußte Mensch von heute kann diese Sachen, diese refined Qualitäten mit spirit eben auch appreciaten. Allerdings geht unser voice auch auf bestimmte Zielgruppen. Wer Ladyisches will, searcht nicht bei Jil Sander. Man muß Sinn haben für das effortless, das magic meines Stils." (im Magazin der FAZ, 1996)

Exhibit 5: A graphic introduction to Agopunktion (or too much/too little punctuation for nothing)

And a very nice page on the BBC Site showcasing how far you can go with a few misplaced puncuation marks.

More information on Wikipedia. If you enjoy the examples and want to see more, go to Philipp Oelwein's Klugscheißer site.
