Emoticon

From Encyclopedia Dramatica

Jump to: navigation, search

As the name suggests, Emo On The Internet Icons or Emoticons (sometimes called smileys, which is ridiculous as not all of them are fucking smiling) are the only way to express human emotion OTI, as shortly after Al Gore invented the Internets, he passed a law stating that everything on it must be shortened to an acronym. Complex feelings, such as <3 and h8 are no exception, and so arose the age of the emoticon.

Origin Of The :)

The smiley, like many other worthless inventions, was invented in Pittsburgh.

I propose that the following character sequence for joke markers:

Read it sideways. Actually, it is probably more economical to mark things that are NOT jokes, given current trends. For this, use

—Carnegie Mellon University message board, 19 September 1982

Because of the general IQ around CMU, it took a while to get across to the other students that he meant to look at it with your head tilted to the left, and not as a dick fucking the underside of a dome.

Graphical And Animated Emoticons

Many complex emotions are represented here, including Homosexuality, Infantilism, Furry, and the ever-popular "masturbating in the bath while listening to music".

As emoticons evolved, they were replaced by graphical representations, and eventually animated GIFs. This allowed for even more flexibility in illustrating an ever wider gamut of emotions, from happiness to "Fuck you, I'm a dragon!"

Jew, charging money for downloadable sets of smileys, for use on AIM, Yahoo and MSN Messenger. These are still wildly popular with 16 year old girls and pedophiles alike. For the non-retarded Internets user who knows things like that should be free there's always DeviantART.

Image Macro Emoticons

In shitholes like 4chan, emoticons are replaced with image macros and spammed incessantly. Here are what some mean.
