sometime though Sue, the emoji inflames… I recall one a short time ago where the use of cause a bit of stir and a storm when a poster tried to associate it with unkind things
Some people just have no sense of humour
To disarm the doubters of my intent I sometimes use the “cluster bomb” technique: a nonchalant double handful or smorgasbord of dubious emojis with a scattering of winks, protruded tongues, smiles and upside-down heads, and some flora and fauna too. Never seems to elicit any negativity. Road traffic signs add a touch of intrigue to any emoji-string.
People probably just think I’m soft in the head. There’s intellectual stimulus to be gained from figuring out my mindset from my emojis, some of which are as impressive as a Jackson Pollock creation or an illustrated mediaeval manuscript, I reckon.
Very true about differences in a sense of humour. Not long ago I posted a little (i thought) humour on a local Google group.
It was not accepted, with the following note “There apparently are a lot of scared old folk out there, a lot living on their own, so not really suitable.”
This was the offending post (Warning! Not suitable for those of a sensitive nature).
I have just returned from Lidl in Chalais where I bought a 1.5 litre bottle of Chianti for 6.99.
I then spent half an hour looking for liver & fava beans but could not find any.
What would you listen to on the radio when driving the kids to school?
Caroline Community Radio (Maldon, Essex) recently played this song during the school run time and received a number of complaints…
Best 9½ minutes any kid ever spent on the way to school
and a shorter more adult graphical version for those in a hurry…
