In honour of the new emoticon, I'll raise another old question.
This poll sounds to me like: "Which emoticon is best?" in which case, quite clearly the pirate is superior. He even looks pseudo 3D.
Thanks very much Vox, you did a great job, though I have no idea when I would ever use it (sensibly lol)
If the question is: "Who would win virtually any contest, a pirate or a ninja" the answer is obviously ninja.
The pirate emoticon wins. I think. Or do ninjas win? I'm confused, again...Why do we have to choose?!?!? can't we all just live together, happy and peaceful like, or happy and drunk in the case of pirates?
