I've always wondered what this smiley means but I've been to lazy to ask...lol
It's a farting smiley, mate. It means the person who uses it was holding in some hot gas and thus the pressure moves toward the face resulting in blushing.
Ah, that explains it!
I never knew that.... I've been using that smilie for all the wrong reasons.
......... the more you know....
An elaboration of the popular :3 emoticon. Also featured in Anime, x3 describes an extatic or cheeky 'cute' character. The 'x' depicts eyes tightly scrunched together.
In internet chatter, x3 is often used as a youthemism to describe one's playfull or joking intentions.
In its various forms (usually akin to Japanese anime), it's supposed to denote the ultimate cuteness with an eyes closed smile. As opposed to :3 which would be with eyes open.
but if I were to respond to someone with "haha x3" maybe they'll think I meant to laugh 3 times and think I'm lazy
@James - agreed. It's not the most straightforward smiley.
I thought it had something to do with anime...
I like the idea of it being related to passing gas better.. just saying
Last time this was attempted it had some less desirable, adverse affects.
Hah. Yeah, jokes aside I really couldn't tell you, but I did think that a few years ago. Shelley's work is excellent and she manages to capture legitimate emotions through her work.
omg that is grossly cute Ha
I don't get the chance to do any animated smilies nowadays (such as the times have changed) unlike years ago when I used to design tons of animated smilies which convey that little bit more character.
Haha, that is new information for me, too!
The only X3 I knew of so far was this one.
