Happy 25th Smiley!


I read in today’s newspaper that the smiley face emoticon is 25 years old today. Twenty-five years ago, Carnegie Mellon University professor Scott E. Fahlman says, he was the first to use three keystrokes a colon followed by a hyphen and a parenthesis as a horizontal ”smiley face” in a computer message.

We all know the typical smileys. 🙂 🙁 😉

How about these?

*) User is drunk.
😎 User is wearing sunglasses.
:-~) User has a cold.
:’-( User is crying.
:-& User is tongue tied.
-O User is yawning/snoring.
😀 User is laughing (at you!)
:-X User’s lips are sealed.
