Why does the smiley face look like a pervert?

Seriously.  Have you looked at it closely?  What is wrong with Wordpress?  Why do the smiley faces on my posts look like a f*cking pervert?   I have never seen a smiley face with arched eyebrows like these…

Tell me they don’t look sinister.  I mean, come on.

Even Google’s smileys, though I do consider them to be on the dunce side, can be said to convey cuteness, or at least attempt to.

I now feel extremely self-conscious when I leave a comment on other people’s blogs and I want to add a smiley to convey my friendliness:

“I come in peace.  I mean you no harm.”  And by the way, here is what I look like when I am saying this, smiling:

Whoa.  I scare myself just looking at it.  Now my comment looks like a death threat from a psychotic serial killer. Great.

@ Jennifer
Thank you! Good to know I’m not crazy. I will leave you a wink 😉 instead of a creepy smiley.

Thanks Robin. You know me only too well… Who else would have said, by accident I swear, “launch cum tasting party”…

Great. A self-reflective sinister mind? Oy.

@ Jane
Indeed. Somehow the wink is perfectly normal… 😉

He (and it’s a “he” because only a man would be so sinister….) definitely looks like he’s up to something…something that he’ll pay for dearly later…

@ Jessica
I totally agree with you: definitely a man. And definitely something he will pay for later! Thanks for visiting my blog. btw, I love yours. :-) <-- NOT paying for this "crime" later...

I know this isn’t your newest post, but I just had to comment and say LOL. I have always thought that too! 😛

Great blog you have here :)

@ Ashley
Thank you! I need to add your praise to my “Proof I am not crazy” page as “Testimonies!” Although I started out thinking, “I’m just doing this for myself,” but of course, sometimes I do wonder whether anybody reads it… 😉 So thank you for the kind words!
