(Insert emoticon of a thumbs up)
That’s right. It’s the anniversary of the emoticon. Well… technically March 30th is but I just found out today, so bare with me here.
March 30th is said to mark the very first appearance of an emoticon in “Puck” magazine.
You can read the whole history of the emoticon here, remember the good old days before emoji’s when you had to be really crafty with your brackets, periods, colons, spaces, slashes and more to depict the perfect emotion. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
