What's going on...

The Rt Hon Kennett has always claimed to be against large smilies and animated graphics. So image my shock when I found this in the ribnet smilies list!

I am sure Mr. Kennett had a very good reason!

I think it may have been specifically for my head through the snake tank post.

There have beena few posts recently that could have warranted this gratuitously oversized and animated "smilie", but it was indeed the "head in the snake tank" episode that promted me to go off and find it!

Whatever next? Fairies? Avatars? People having fun? Going boating without carrying a Bowie knife? This could be the thin end of the wedge . . .

...I know where you nicked it from, Oh Lanky One, and when I tell the boys you've been lurking on a proper site... they'll chase your hide all the way back to "Red Necksville"...

I didn't nick it from there actually, although that is where I first saw it. I did try to nick it from there, but it's not on the smilie list and I couldn't find a post with it on!
