Love it. Little thing though: for "expand" --> "physically expand", the extension gives me 10–20 physicallys, probably because the substitution contains its own trigger word. And as others said, uppercase and lowercase distinction would be nice but that's just cosmetic. Edit: they are getting more and more. I am at over 50 physicallys now.

I tried replacing "."="!?" but instead it just replaces every space with "!?". Other than that it worked fine and I had a lot of fun.

Very nice... worth the install. Laughing for days. Don't forget to turn it off if you're doing something serious, though... it can get confusing. Still. Very good.
