I am not terribly embarrassed to say that putting the emoticon animals in some sort of indecent array is an altogether amusing way to spend a Friday morning.
What is the most embarrassing string of messenger emoticons you have strung together? I always knew that messenger-speak was a vernacular unto its own, sort of a techno-slang/informal chat speak, but I think eventually it moves into something like this. It devolves to a point of removing words altogether, speaking in symbols. It is like a rudimentary form of hieroglyphs. At least it is for me.
