Cool invention huh. Yeah, pretty cool...
Until they go wrong.
I use MSN messenger. I liked the old version better. Now I'm not saying this in a pretentious hipster douchetard way, it's more or less the same thing, and if it's any better than the old version I can't tell. It's probably more stable or something. The emoticons in the old version, however, didn't look like they were plotting to cut your face off in your sleep.
Oh, you thought I was exaggerating?
Look at it again.
"Don't turn your back on me."
This here is 'Sarcastic Smiley'. Sarcastic my ass. Sarcastically just slipped a roofie into your drink. I don't know whether or not it's the tilt of the eyebrow, or something else, but I don't feel safe around this smiley... Just... Get it away from me.
I don't know what the hell this is supposed to be... Angry... I suppose. But it just doesn't convey that emotion, y'know. The first time I saw this I thought "What the hell, this guy doesn't look angry..." And then I got to speculating.
Maybe he sleeps upside down, and is like, really happy at the moment.
Maybe someone drew a face on a slice of salami. They did it wrong.
Maybe he has heatstroke, and that's actually a pained grimace.
Either way, he needs help.
This is supposed to be 'vampire bat'. The animation is a vampire face morphing into a bat and flying away, but in this frame it looks like an egg.
This is the safest you'll feel for a while.
Insert bacon here -->
: ) haunts my dreams.
It is Jame Gumb. It is Alex Delarge. It is Legion. It is Hannibal, come to beat down your city's walls.
And I always forget... MSN is different now man... It has evil in it.
You'll be typing, and innocently put in :) and then BAM
You've invited it into your presence.
I will enjoy watching you fail.
I hope you listen to this warning. It's best that you learn from my mistakes, and don't repeat them.
