Weekend Word Wrap: emoticons revisited

A year ago, almost to the day, I wrote about e-motorcons and dropped some of the origins of their predecessors, emoticons. Earlier this week, The New York Times had a piece on emoticons, as well, explaining that far from dying out, the fad seems to be growing in popularity and worming its way into business transactions.

The most interesting part of the article was the graphic, which I've copied below. I mean honestly people, Elvis? John Lennon? Who has this kind of time on their hands?

Actually, I'm hoping you all do. Let's see who can come up with the most creative, new, emoticon. I'll start the emoto-ball rolling with  [:{  a Frenchman with a waxed moustache.
