One of the funniest discussions of emoticons I’ve ever seen (in an interview of John Darnielle of the Mountain Goats on Pitchfork):

Pitchfork: I figure there’s one way to start an e-mail interview: A friend of mine taught me this emoticon, Q:), which is a smiling Davy Crockett. What ya got?

John Darnielle: My friend Mark Givens and I had an emoticon we amused ourselves with years ago. Not sure if I can remember it. :/> I think it was, but that’s a rough guess. To me, it looks like perhaps it means “becoming gradually but unignorably cognizant of one’s status as a resident of Hell.”
