Smackie, oh smackie, I need you!


Not here, obviously. We have a nice smackie, and he's very useful, and I use him a lot.

But what with the Current Troubles I've been posting a lot more on Facebook (ie "at all"), and the lack of a decent is really slowing me down. Also the available options kinda suck.

But at least you can show in about a dozen different ways. I guess that's great for all those congenitally people

I personally like the 'smackie' lots.
It helps explain a few things I experience in my everyday life.

I guess that says how many boo-boos there are in my life.

ISTM I saw it mentioned in some sticky thread around here, that the smackicon was custom drawn by a Doper for this board, explaining why it exists only here. It is indeed one of the most useful of smilie-type icons.

Still missing the older-style roll-eyes we used to have. The current one just doesn't say the same thing.

I know it doesn't quite look the same, but the same general idea does have an emoji.

If it works right, this should be it: 🤦

oh...THAT's what that is. I thought she was doing an eye exam.

Yeah, she kinda sucks. No offense to whatever graphic artist originally drew it...
