An emoti-mime, short for "Emoticon Pantomime
", is an evil person
who only replies to your IM's on something like AOL Instant Messenger
, or even the chatterbox
, with Emoticons ONLY.
SomeAIMGuy: Hey, how's it going?
SomeAIMGuy: Err... is that good?
SomeAIMGuy: What the hell? Are you smoking something?
SomeAIMGuy: I'll break that freakin' halo over your ears if you don't say something
SomeAIMGuy: Don't act so f#@^ing shocked. You're obnoxious
As you can see, an emoti-mime can cause just as much pain and frustration as a real mime. Also, this brings up a new version of the age old question, "If someone ping floods an emoti-mime to death somewhere on the internet, does anyone care?"
