Gorgonzola likes to make thought bubbles. These are chat messages of the form:

. o O ( xxx )

Where the xxx is a thought. Actually, rather a nifty little trick. Much like those of us reared on non-IRC chat clients who use star actions instead of /me.

An ASCII graphic which is equivalent to a thought balloon. I've seen this implemented as an action in text-only multiuser environments, such as FIX.

For instance, if the user arj issues the command "*think Hmm, I wonder where I put my towel...", everyone who is logged on will see the following:

arj . o O ( Hmm, I wonder where I put my towel... )
