What do you mean "smiley"?


Have you ever had one of those weird 'drawings' in any of your messages ?
In case you did and doubted what they meant, here are their (my) explanations:

:)        - First original smiley by user with no time on hand (unix/DOS coder smiley).
;)        - Ditto winking smiley for user with no spare second, using monospaced fonts.
:0        - Ooh and Aah smiley expressing 'WOW' or 'How dare you/I say that?' feeling.
:-)       - Message/sentence which is humorous / smiley standard / Happy guy
:-(       - Frowning. Sad or Un-smiley / Message which often means trouble / Sad guy.
;-)       - Message to be taken with a grain of salt. A.k.a. winking/Sardonic incredulity.
            Ideal standard smiley for readers using serif font (Times New Roman etc.)
            Wink! Wink! Nudge! Nudge! (see Monthy Python's Flying Circus)
8*)       - Writer aware of his/her bad habits. Submitter puts on clowns-nose on purpose.
            Author of message is mocking readers that take life or writing too serious
            for his/her taste. (smiley seems to be invented by me, Julius).
:-\       - Undecided smiley. 'hell *I* don't know, I'm only human'
            'OK, so he knocked me out...' OR: Popeye smiling face,
            for people who look like popeye.
:-/       - Lefty undecided smiley, also often: 'just my luck' or 'stupid me again'
            Or: 'But then I got a thick chin...'
:-|       - Smiley 'have an ordinary day'. Grim. Bored with the usual.
