Does anyone know who created this smiley? I would like to convert it, but I want to find out who the artist is and ask their permission before doing so.

I know who the author is, but he's proving difficult to track down.

pardon.gif I'll keep trying, but it may take some time.

connie, сделай ремикс, но при этом скажи сразу, что сделано с чужого образца. Так будет правильно и ничего страшного не случится. Если сразу сказать, что идея чужая. Я так думаю... biggrin.gif

maybe you can make it less violent, connie. if you give one kolobok a small blow pipe which shoots paper balls it will have the same pestering feel to it and you don't breach any "copyrights"

Doc... the smiley depicts an expression.

Yes, we silly Americans (I'm not really sure where it originated) sometimes refer to something as, "Better than a slap in the face with a wet fish."
crazy.gif Which means about the same as, "Better than a kick in the stomach." or sometimes "in the head."

Obscure? You bet! But they're funny to hear. biggrin.gif

I've never heard that expression, JC unknw.gif

Though when I think of fish gags, I can't help but think of that Jack Lemmon/Walter Matthau movie where they would hide fish in each others vehicles. mosking.gif Those guys were hilarious!

Sorry Connie, but after attempting to contact him through multiple email addresses (all inactive) and attempting to join a few websites where there was a user with the same name; I haven't had any luck. nea.gif

I can tell you that version was made by someone calling himself carl2knight, and that it made it's debut on IPB in March of 2003.

I don't know the date (or author) of this smiley but I'll guess it predates carl's.

So since the smiley you want to convert is likely a conversion itself, well... just go ahead and do it! blum.gif
