(:) COLON-ialism

September 29, 2009

The emoticons are celebrating. Their days of oblivion is over now. They have found a messiah. It seems that the lord himself has taken avatar to bring out the glory of emoticons. Yes, Vineet Saini has decided to adopt them, embracing them as his children, vowing to never leave them alone. The long days of suppressed anger are now a thing of the past. A past where emoticons were only either happy or sad. Other emotions were just ignored as if they didn’t exist. A few saints did try to put voice into them (Yahoo!), but they forgot that emotions can’t be portrayed by speaking alone. They are expressions of sorrow and joy, peace and anger, love and despair. Emoticons had given up, all hopes lost, accepting oblivion as a part of life.

Then happened CAT-07, this CAT gave IIM Kozhikode a 100 percentiler and emoticons a ray of hope. As normal people were busy celebrating, this person had come with a mission to accomplish. Every thing was set in place, all the pieces were falling together. He was just waiting for Google to launch their new family of emoticons. Then the wheels set into motion. Millions across the world received an innocent looking file called theme.exe with a request to run the application. What followed was something they could never have imagined. All these innocent victims were greeted by a good morning emoticon (:gm) in the morning and :gn (good night) at night. :angry made them repent while :ilu lead to :B (blush). Birthdays became :bday and parties were forgotten. The world was finally recognizing the power of emoticons. They were assertive and they were direct. They had a shimmer in their eyes as was never seen before. In no time they took over the empire that humans had taken centuries to build.

Mankind is now a secondary species, preceded by a colon (example, :khannu). And the saint is laughing (on Facebook :haha)
