Default Dripping Sarcasm Icon

So I thought I'd try to do a dripping sarcasm icon. My concept was the rolleyes inside a liquid drip. I only have MS Paint with little talent so no joy so far. I'm unable to get the rolleyes inside the drip. If someone thinks it's worth doing maybe a member with some talent can help a buddy out.

Here's what I tried to use. It's free stuff from a search. Thanks, vic

Exactly what makes you think we need a "dripping with sarcasm" emoticon?

I mean seriously. This is a business. We're all getting paid a great deal of money to type on this site and I for one think it's about time to get rid of all emoticons.

Emoticons smack of the "gamer" mentality that has nearly ruined the web for anyone under 65 85.

Why, I remember when we used to send emails using a push button and a toggle switch.

ASCII was going to be killed by EBCIDIC.

64 kilobits of RAM was plenty, back then. How much RAM does an emoticon take? I bet it's at least a megabyte. Don't hog the bandwidth, piggy-piggies.

Does anyone know why I can't get sprinter-source postings via UUCP any more? My Telebit modem isn't getting any phone calls.

Where am I and why am I wearing this diaper?

Here it is, except we should change "dancing cheek to cheek" to "dancing breast to beak."

What I don't know is how to include it in the emoticon panel. Nor do I know how big it should be to fit in there.

Peter,
That is exactly what I had in mind. Maybe with the drip being a bit smaller in proportion to the rolleyes.

Maybe Seek can get it into the emoticon format/list?.

Let's give it a test run.....

If Seek can give me the required pixel dimensions for emoticons, I'll adjust the drip to suit.

Peter,
Thanks for the effort and help. I guess it's up to Sikwan to decide whether Sprinter-source really needs a custom sarcasm smilie or not. vic

Could we also add a large female breast icon?
