Emoticon Guide

OK, this page is more for fun than anything else, but if you send lots of e-mail or spend any time in chat rooms, you'll probably like this.

Emoticons are little text representation of emotions. For example, here's a smiley face (look at it sideways):


What the heck are they for? Well, when you talk to someone, they can tell what you mean by the tone of your voice or the look on your face. For example, maybe someone says something like, "Why are you so annoying?"

Now, if they say it while they're laughing, you know that it's just lighthearted humor. If they say it with a bit of anger in their voice, you realize that it's probably time to back off.

Problem is, when I wrote that, you had no clue which direction I was going with it. Was I mad or joking?

Well, if I write it like this, you know:

Why are you so annoying :-)

See? So, here's a list of the more common emoticons that you'll run across.
