fyi - I think smileys/emoticons became illegal when the year turned over. But our e-secret ...
when I got my blog registration it said I shouldn't answer an e-mail this quickly, ... so you should know I'm only taking a quick breath for air while writing my multi-million dollar "power" script ...
do you get a lot of peretti = pretty lines?
I've said too much...
ciao for niao

Uhoh......I had a belated nagging feeling a link with "dumb fuck" and "douche" might not illicit shared laughter....I am an idiot who puts comedy before brotherhood at all times. But I swear it wasn't personal. I just thought it was funny to be aggro about smileys.

no, um, seriously, its fine.On 1/24/06, Chelsea Peretti wrote:
you're so peretti you know (i feel "here and there" is clearance for me to go crazy)
you know what sucks though is that this was the first time I proactively broke out the smiley criticism. It was like I was breaking it in to the arsenal. So not only did it not go over, I come to find out its hack material ...
on top of that I'm questioning me sending that first e-mail to really "sell" my hating of your "joke."
this thread started out with such promise. now life is going very fast and i'm sweating.
still, I might end up using this for a post also.
if only to link youand tell my blog friends we slept together.
hhhahaahahahahaaaa hilarious exchange. it's only irritating to me. everyone else would agree with you re: smileys.On 1/24/06, T. A. Negro wrote

but this is a nice way to seduce people to your show. I'm so going now. mark it down. How To Create Fans: get people to e-mail you, then call them a douche INSTANTLY on their blog, and tell them "sorry, its jokes b4 people 4 me"On 1/24/06, Chelsea Peretti wrote:

Hhaa its jokes b4 people 4 me. You should come to the shac on feb 7th.
That's my favorite.
Yesterday was the breaking-in of the smiley criticism AND the "ciao for niao" - don't go biting my e-styze fellas, that's just wrong. It's protected by a Creative Commons license.
I love Chelsea's follow-up with an apology and then she double e's me [sic] not to reemphasize the apology, or god forbid, retract the statement, but to correct the word "elicit."
Chelsea's a smart marketer, because it ends up being a shameless plug for her show.
I can't believe I happened on the person who orchestrated blackpeopleloveus.com. Though I'm a little pissed she beat me to it, it's like she was TAN before TAN.
Finally, the ultimate reflection, and only real question that matters is, who's more of a "douche?" People who use smileys, or people who call out smiley users?
What say the people???
