Subject: That smiley is used out of context

Written By: whistledog on 01/17/09 at 10:33 pm

so I am going to use one out of context because have you ever seen a smiley face used where it doesn't belong?  :-*

So I knew this guy who got bit by a dog and he cried tears  8)

A man walked down the street and tripped over the curb, chipping 3 teeth  :)

So I met this girl the other day.  Man I think she could be the one http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/12/director.gif

Man, is it ever wet and cold outside.  This weather sucks http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/15/sunny.gif

So my favourite team lost the hockey game.  Man am I depressed over it http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/15/thumbsup.gif



;D ;D ;D ;D

Yeah when I first started here I accidentally used a  >:( when I meant a  :( and somebody thought I was mad at them and got all defensive.  I'll see if I can find that.

Edit to add: I found it but the response from whoever it was is gone now... so it doesn't have the same effect

I've seen  :P used for context that were slightly off cuff.  Lyricboy and Max have been known to do that.
