  1. Is it just me or are these faces kind of a cop out? I mean its kind of like the old "just sayin'" clause where you could be like
    "dude, your mom's a super skanky pus dripping ho bag. Hey, I'm just sayin'" and it would be all better. I tell you, when I have been really deeply insulted nothing soothes my savaged soul like a smiley face made out of different combinations of punctuation.

    I think they serve a purpose when used appropriately for the good of mankind.

  4. I could use about a dozen more. Dr Evil w/pinky, vomitting-a-little-in-my-mouth-but-it's-OK, spontaneous combustion...

  5. Yeah, somebody make an emoticon of "guy on toilet with only one arm trying to play the ukelele and eat oreos while his wife yells at him to go rake the yard".

    That's one I could really use

    Man! Everybody seems just a little tense today! :crying:


    I wonder what it could be! :confused:


    I will send out my ninjas to investigate! :ninja:


    Or maybe just go do some jumping jacks! :hyper:


    Or Screw it. Maybe I'll just go lay out by the pool and forget it... :cool:


    A nap maybe? :oops:


    You need to relax dude! I'm just sayin. ;)
     
  9. I sense sarcasm, but I am ok with this. There are only so many craigslist and youtube and fail jokes I can be amused by, so I decided to gripe about these damned emoticons. I use them all the time, but then I realized, "hey, I'm not a 13 year old girl who just discovered AIM"

    LOL and ROTFL and all that nonsense are next!
     
  10. :meh: Maybe not on the outside... :ninja:
    Edit: :D
