============================================================================
We all know those cute little computer symbols called "emoticons," where  :)
means a smile and :( is a frown.  Sometimes these are represented by :-) and
:-( respectively.  Well, how about some "ass icons"?

    Here goes:

(_!_)      a regular ass
(__!__)    a fat ass
(!)        a tight ass
(_._)      a flat ass
(_^^_)      a bubble ass
(_*_)      a sore ass
(_!__)     a lop-sided ass
{_s_}       a swishy ass
(_o_)      an ass that's been around
(_O_)     and ass that's been around even more
(_x_)     kiss my ass
(_X_)     leave my ass alone
(_zzz_)    a tired ass
(_o^^o_)   a wise ass
(_13_)     an unlucky ass
(XX!XX)   a big kiss-ass

EMOTICONS

This isn't very academic, but you'll see that some real thought has gone
into the creation of emoticons which are read by turning your
head to the side (left).  Emoticons have evolved from simple smiles,
: )    : >    : D  and frowns : <-(
hugs {{{{}}}}} and winks  ; )

This listing is a compilation of several emoticons that are floating around.  I
tried to eliminate the duplicates.  If you catch any more, please let me know.  : )
