Any way to place a comma after "go" so our "You Go Girl" can become "You go, girl!"?

Of course, a you-go girl always gets someone else to go in her sentences and put in her commas!  :hahaha 

(Am I the only one laughing?)

I think the smilies come pre-punctuated, sadly ;)  We have no control over that.

If you want to get started on the grammar and punctuation of the smilies, you've got a big job ahead of you.

Thank You!
I'm proud of you
thankx

Life's too short!

Heh, heh. Think of them as characters in a book, Dionna. Our characters don't always use the best grammar, either, ya know? :)

Good analogy, Verla!  I must admit, You Go Girl smilie is one of my favorite characters, right up there with Dancing Chicken!

Ooh I dislike that one and the 'proud of you' one, too. Something about their faces and dumb expressions really winds me up! Yes, I know, that's weird. But surely everyone else also has smilie dislikes?!

After all this time, they've become like characters to us.  :giggle  So, yeah, I think we can love some and hate others. Some people don't like the smilies, period, and turn them off.

Franzilla, if you can find better looking smilies that have the same signs waving around for the ones you don't like, I'll be happy to replace them! Just send the gifs to me in an email.

Oh no, I wouldn't want to do that, Verla. Because then what would Salina taunt me with then?! She'd have to revert to other, potentially more awful methods. Better the devil you know and all that. Thank you so much for the kind offer, though!

Marcia, the "you go girl" smiley used to be in a similar style to the "I'm proud of you" one.

Aah, the many ways to procrastinate when you should be writing. I just spent five minutes watching You go girl! and have decided that what she's actually saying is, Ooh Eeeh Ooh or You Get Rudy.

I do love our smilies. All of them, even the ones I hate. It's a love/hate thing. My favourite by far has to be this little guy :sigh Every time I see him, I just feel the poster's pain, you know? It's a real empathy-inducing smiley.
