Normal What exactly does this smile mean?



Usually you can right click and find out exactly what they mean (if it isn't self evident) but this one you can't. Is it supposed to mean you are looking grim? You are neutral? Mildly pissed off?

I know it's a stupid question, but it drives me nuts.

Thank you!

I this smilie!! It's an all-purpose smilie!

It can indicate: "whatever" "huh?" "oh please" "no expression" "no comment" "annoyance"

It's one of our best smilies, I believe!

to me it almost shows a kind of shock or disdain. I love it. I also love that it is green.

Its a very useful smilie - kinda says "It figures"


Some smilies get overused to the point that they lose their original meaning

I think every meaning mentioned above is applicable. It also means, "I'm saying this with a straight face." It connotes matter-of-factly-ness.

may be the best smilie I've ever seen, but and are almost as great.

Oh, and the green is a key part of what makes the smilie work so well.
