    Default emoticoms

    Sometimes we bemoan the fact that there are not any emoticoms for certain
    comments. Please don't be offended, but my brother sent me a few that we could
    certainly use on this forum occasionally:

    (_!_)

    (_*_)

    (_x_)

    I'll not translate but maybe you know somebody who is the 'butt' of the joke?
    Sorry.

    FYI, it's "emoticoNs" As in, "emotion" + "icon". As in "icon" being something other than a word expressing an idea in written language. In any case, it ain't "-coms".

    Otherwise, I do appreciate writing peppered with a$$ pictures. Heck, by the time civilization has descended this far, what's a further bastardization of writing?

    Your brother is so cool! But I don't know what the emoticons mean. Tell him hi from me.I hope he's not out searching for the missing malaysian plane.

    I say those butt things would be emoticoms. Emotion + comedic.

    New word! New word! Tell 'em you heard about it here!
