What emoticons are expected to look like.

An emoticon (colloquially known as a "smiley"), is a small person, about 5 millimetres tall and weighing half a gram. Emoticons are made of keyboard characters loosely defined by a common trait of whinyness, comb-overs, eyeliner, lack of testosterone, poor self image, flatulence, an affinity for Rites of Spring or, on the opposite end of the spectrum, ridiculous pop-punk; and the uncanny ability to self-replicate.

Types of emoticons[edit | edit source]

To learn about emotes (emoticons) you first must be able to identify an emoticon.

The More Complicated Emoticons[edit | edit source]

And now, we introduce some slightly more complex relatives.

Some smilies are created solely to impress, and I mean impress! Not Peter Andre and jOOrdan impress, like an American beauty pageant impress, where they all hold their breath and put on slutty bikinis. The kind where you can really put your own stamp on them. Now watch closely children, because this WILL help you pass your GCSEs.

(^^^) Shark!!!
*^_^* I'm so cute and don't I goddamn know it!
@(^^)@ Hello?! Listening to ipod here!
(oYo) *ahem*
£("-') Loving the profile darling, now spin, spin, spin and show off that hair!
{*>*} I'm an INDIEvidual
(^+^) Mommy! I love you! Now can I have another biscuit? Please?
=^-^= Miaow!
±_± Now, when I was a young grasshopper.......

>:0(&) I just found out that I have a tape worm!
<("<) Kirby!
,.., Vampire, for all you stupid Twilight fans

...and so on. As you can see these "more complex" emotes are completely idiotic and make no sense whatsoever. In fact, it is a common belief that the whole concept of emotes is stupid. If you feel the need to express emotions go and call someone and talk to them over the phone or use one of those new-fangled web-cams.

Why do emoticons exist?[edit | edit source]

Typical view inside your everyday chatroom

Emotes exist because a single person who had way too much spare time decided that it wanted to express itself through semicolons, asterisks, commas, full stops, arrows and many more odd little markings that exist on our keyboards. The inventor (religion soon to come) of emotes must obviously have had no social life and, therefore, decided that trying to make cute little faces out of these odd markings would be a good waste of time. What a pampered fathead.

Who uses emoticons?[edit | edit source]

Mostly emoticons are used by children with instant messaging or 'messenger' who uses them to express feelings they have. They are also frequently used on MySpace, Bebo and other MySpace-like sites for stupid people with the emotional range of a keyboard. Some people take it upon themselves to give every emoticon they send a silly little nose resembling either a triangle or a line.

Emotes are not usually used by sane people as sane people know how to express their feelings through speech and body language instead of strange markings on a piece of paper or computer screen. However, no sane person has been validly spotted on the internet since 1995.
