RIP Sideways Smiley

This is courtesy of Chuck Lorre Productions. This was Chuck's vanity card after the March 22, 2010 episode of Two and a Half Men. It was just too funny not to pass along.


Sideways Smiley Face



Sideways Smiley Face died on March 14, 2010, surrounded by his loved ones. The cause of death was over-use. Born on a Computer Science on-line bulletin board at Carnegie Mellon University, Mr. Face devoted his life to pointing out that the previous sentence was meant to be funny. He also gained worldwide recognition for his tireless efforts as a glib substitute for the words “I’m amused.” His other interests included frowning and winking.


He is survived by his children, Sideways Surprised Face, Sideways Glasses Face, Sideways Abraham Lincoln Face, Sideways Santa Claus Face, Sideways Pope Face, and, of course, his beloved wife, XOXO.


In lieu of flowers, Mr. Face’s family has requested that people use actual words to express their feelings.
