WE DEMAND MORE FUNNY FACE THINGS
This is serious! I just tried to post a thread and my feelings were whimsicality, ire and a touch of nostalgia. THERE WAS NO FUNNY FACE THING THAT HAD THIS EXPRESSION! I think i would politely request more ...ooo and one on a scooter please.:tonguec:
Just try http://www.mysmiley.net/
did it work?
I find it so sickening when people say the most callous things and then insert their little smiley faces.
Less is more!
Recent additions to Icrontic that never made it over here. No, no bouncing ball faces :hrm:
(the codes above are, in order: screwy, viking, facepalm, cofee, and dunce)
Oh the important work I am tasked with.
Lincoln you rule!
Just need some space full of grace
I would walk for miles and miles
To evade a faithless face.
Someone could have a page full of emoticons and it would be OK with me.
What I strongly object to is a smiling emoticon being used after some snide or callous response to someone. That's just very shallow and insulting. Irritating also, but mostly just low-down rude.
But then, I live in the South, where good manners are prized and inculcated.
May the Force Be With You!
But, that's not gonna stop me from voicing my objections when it's done to me!
I recently read this on another forum - honestly - and it just seemed ludicrous...
to be fair, most members came in and ripped him a new one for 'Lolling' so much....
Just do it with a smile, 'mkay? It hurts so much less when you do it with a smile.
They call that untherapeutic communication, do they?
Some possibilities I've thought of -
Lame Old Lettuce
Leotards Only, Ladies
Life Obviously Leaks
...Just ignore me...
It progresses to -
ROTFL....Rolling on the Floor Laughing.....
and finishes with -
Rolling on the Floor Laughing My Flippin' Ass Off
(only, I don't really know many people who'd use the term 'flippin'.... I think they might insert a slightly more expressive word, there..... )
Hope it helps!
Yeah, Fede, people starting, punctuating, and ending their posts with LOL is just too much silly banter. I'm hoping it will go OUT with the Oughts, come Jan. 1. It's so 2000's.
It's so tiresome and detracts from the message:
"LOL, my mother is an axe-murderer and she just did away with my old man. LOL, she didn't get away with it, though. LOL, when the police came for her, LOL..."
I don't know people who laugh every time they make a simple statement.
Perhaps, uh, I might try, er, interjecting, uh, uh, a few extra syllables when, er, I would pause for a word or, er, something....er, while speaking. At least, though annoying, it wouldn't cheapen the value of a sincere laugh every now and then.
I prefer the magic Lady's coloratura.
