How to write a smiley

Maybe it’s just me, or maybe I share this feeling with other people. What, you ask, what? I can’t stand how people write smilies…

Perhaps I’m overreacting, but why are people massacring their poor smilies? Or expressing them so they look like refugees from a leper colony? To me, a smiley should always consist of three elements: eyes, nose and mouth!

Therefore, I declare all smilies that look like this extinct:


Please, give your smilies a nose! Stop scaring kids! πŸ™‚


PS. If you want to post smiley examples in plain text in your comments, make sure to have them on a separate line to avoid image escaping when posting them (they will still be escaped in the preview). DS.
