Sometimes emoticons fail to convey the right message at first; even the more graphical, fancy-schmancy emojis can get lost in trans-emoticons-lation. When it comes down to it though, some fails are so hilarious they’re wins.
I can’t judge, though. I’ve never hearted the internet age-old convention of <3 because it always looked like a sideways scrotum to me. (Yes, I already know I’m very messed up.) So, I’ve always typed out “I heart (something).”*
* I admit I’ve also typed “I scrotum (something)” to those few who know my heart-symbol aversion.
I guess the point is, if you’re going to misunderstand or be uncertain about an emoticon or emoji, at least make it entertaining?
